Abstract
Robotics is a key emerging technology where successful implementation depends on the user's ability to effect advantageous solutions at the lowest possible development cost. This applies the need to the use the best and most suitable technologies, irrespective if their origin is national or foreign, thereby calling for effective cooperative international efforts. Robotics is a multidisciplinary domain with numerous subspecialties. This complicated nature of the technology affects the knowledge transfer and makes it much more difficult to find quid pro quo "nuggets," particularly in jurisdictions of other countries. Mechanisms facilitating identification of those special technologies must be improved. Various options available to address this problem on the U.S.-Canada bilateral level are presented. Similarly, possibilities for cooperative research and development in robotics-related areas are addressed.
