2022 Excellence in Tech Transfer

Brian Weiss Tech Transfer


Dr. Weiss is honored for exceptional innovation and collaborations in transferring a novel robot workcell positioning performance monitoring test method and sensor to manufacturers. His achievements include: 1) creation of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement consortium that other NIST researchers can use as a template to transfer their technologies to external stakeholders, 2) multiple collaborations that increased industry capability to measure robot workcell positioning performance, and 3) a new method for robot users to verify vendor claims of repeatability. This transfer increases manufacturer confidence and competitiveness through improved equipment utilization, more accurate processes, and decreased maintenance costs.
