Integrates Robotic Technology into Education to Champion the Development of STEM Talent


Shenzhen, China - May 21, 2024 - In a move to foster closer ties between industry and academia, a delegation of seven Thai top-ranking universities recently visited the headquarters of Dobot, exploring opportunities for collaboration and exchanging insights on the future of education and talent development.



The delegation, which included representatives from the Rajamangala University of Technology Phra Nakhon (RMUTP), Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna (RMUTL), the Rajamangala University of Technology Srivijaya (RMUTSV), the Rajamangala University of Technology Isan Khonkaen Campus, the Rajamangala University of Technology Suvarnabhumi (RMUTSB), Chiang Rai Rajabhat University, Pibulsongkram Rajabhat University, and Auto Didactic Co., Ltd., explored Dobot's latest research and development facilities. They were interested in the company's advanced collaborative robots, motion controllers, and software platforms - all designed to accelerate the adoption of automation technology across a wide range of industries. The delegation impressed the dual-armed, teleoperated X-trainer AI Robot Operation Platform, which can achieve imitation learning via ergonomic master hand controllers. Also, They were captivated by the advanced CRA series cobots gracefully replicating the strokes of traditional Chinese calligraphy, and were equally impressed as the robots effortlessly stacked apples into designated positions.

"We now have around 25 Dobot robots in our two faculties in RMUTP with around 3,000 students learning. And I am encouraging other faculties to incorporate robots into their studies," said Dr. Natworapol Rachsiriwatcharabul. "Dobot robot is very human-friendly. The SafeSkin technology can help persuade students to work with robots closely. We use Dobot courses in the normal curriculum and also some upskilled courses meeting the industry needs. Thailand is not a country with heavy industry, requiring many robot payloads. The Dobot robot size is perfect for our industry. I was amazed by Dobots with more than 1200 Intellectual Property Rights, ranking#1 export sales in China in such a short time. Dobots owns a strong R&D, technical, and sales team."
