Advanced Robotics Manufacturing (ARM) Institute
To foster and grow the national manufacturing ecosystem, the Advanced Robotics Manufacturing (ARM) Institute has formed a national, public-private partnership to develop, demonstrate, and facilitate early adoption of novel robotic solutions. Based in Pittsburgh, ARM is led by a newly established national nonprofit called American Robotics, which was founded by Carnegie Mellon University and includes a national network of 231 stakeholders from industry, academia, local governments and nonprofits.
ARM’s 10-year goals include increasing worker productivity by 30 percent, creating 510,000 new manufacturing jobs in the U.S., ensuring that 30 percent of SMEs adopt robotics technology, and providing the ecosystem where major industrial robotics manufacturers will emerge. ARM focuses on critical growth sectors that are ripe for rapid adoption of robotics in manufacturing, including aerospace, automotive, electronics, and textiles.
