Mikell Taylor, a 2008 attendee said â€œThis is one of the more interesting robotics conferences I've ever been to. With the breadth of specialties in the robotics industry -- medical, consumer, military, and so on -- it's hard to cover all of them in just two short days, but TePRA made a solid go at it last year. This is a great small, intimate conference with some stellar speakers from industry."
