UK robotics innovation is taking centre stage this summer, with the announcement of a nationwide programme of exciting events for the first ever UK Robotics Week (25 June – 1 July 2016). Events for people of all ages are being held up and down the country, spanning public lectures, open labs, schools and academic competitions, [...]
The UK’s ability to develop and exploit the vast potential of Robotics and Autonomous Systems was given a major boost today with the formal launch of The EPSRC UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems Network (UK-RAS Network). The Network will bring together the UK’s core academic capabilities in robotics innovation under national coordination for the first time and encourage academic and industry collaborations [...]
Our Space Robot is a Q14 robot from Advanced Robotics Concepts. With active 4 wheel steering and drive, a passive dynamic suspension system and a range of sensors, the Q14 is well equipped to handle a range of environments and provides us with a great platform to test our algorithms. The chassis is capable of [...]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBEoQ5mG7k8 The inspection thread seeks to augment human ability in detailed inspection. The snake arm allows sensors to be deployed in hard to reach places - almost like key hole surgery. it carries cameras and laser to able us to recreate reconstructions of the shape of awkward and potentially dangerous places, [...]
