UK-RAS Legged Robotics Task Group

This Legged Robotics Task Group was formed in February 2020 to provide a central organising hub to bring together UK academics in the emerging field of dynamic walking robots. Funding is generously provided by UK-RAS – an academic leadership body for the UK Robotics.

We intend to form a collective body of academics, researchers and industrial partners in legged and mobile robotics in the UK, host public engagement events in 2020, and catalyze potential emerging industrial sectors for assisted living, warehouse logistics, construction and more.

By hosting the proposed events, we aim to underpin the UK’s potential for autonomous legged & mobile robotics and educate early career research students in the field.
