Prime Hosts First Meeting for Shenzhen Robotics Meetup Group

Shenzhen  Robotics  Meetup  Kickoff  Meeting

February  20, 2019

Prime Robotics has founded the Shenzhen Robotics Meetup group and hosted our kickoff meeting on February 20, 2019  at our office in Shenzhen.  Our guest speaker was previous DARPA Grand Challenge participant Mark Baybutt.   Mark shared with the group his views of current and future trends in the autonomous driving robot space.

We also provided a demonstration of  Prime’s Mobile Shelf warehouse robots and opened one up to discuss the various parts and components with the group.

We also discussed plans for the meetup group and solicited ideas for future events.  The plan is to organize one event every two months and to find interesting speakers who can share good topics for the group.  We had suggestions to connect up with the Maker group in Shenzhen’s  Huaquiang Bei and to see if there is cross-interest and cooperation opportunities among members.

This being the first Meetup for the group,  attendance was small, just  8 people,  and we hope to attract a larger group to future events. If anyone has ideas for topics or speaker suggestions please reach out to our meetup site and connect.

People interested  in participating are invited to  join up at:

We are hoping to create the next event in May or June of 2019.
