We will be showcasing QMUL's varied and exciting robotics activities and hear from our researchers about their most recent advancements in their areas of interest - highlights include soft robotics, flying solar-copters, micro swarm robots, articulated prosthetics for children, robot co-workers for the factory environment, tactile sensing, haptic tele-operation, wearable robots and much more. The event is open to everyone with an interest in the growing field of robotics, be it just curiosity or your professional interest in robotics. On the day, you will see the newly opened robotics laboratory, be able to attend a range of talks by the experts on applications of robotics and meet the Queen Mary research faculty during the networking reception in the historical Octagon hall of QMUL. The event will take place on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at QMUL Mile End campus in London, UK.
The day will start with demonstrations in the robotics laboratory space and will continue with our public engagement talks and interactive demonstrations from QMUL researchers in the Octagon hall. The event is a part of the UK Robotics Week and is co-sponsored by the Centre for Public Engagement, the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and the School of Engineering and Materials Science (SEMS) of QMUL.
