Contributing this blog is Brian Huse who has been with RIA since 1994. In a "walkabout" of the industry that started in 1998, he worked for member companies Deneb (now DELMIA) and Norgren Automotive – a four-year stint in which he was immersed in the business of software and hardware manufacturing for the robotics industry. He rejoined RIA in 2001 and considers lessons learned in the for- and not-for-profit sectors while looking for ways to help RIA members and its publics. Blogging is one way he tries to help the robotics industry stay connected, and he hopes readers will use and comment on information published in Robots in America, RIA’s blog site.
