UK Robotics Week 2017
At ASCE, we are celebrating UK Robotics Week from the 24 - 30 June 2017 by promoting our staff, students and partners who help us to continuously develop research in Mechatronics and Robotics.
We work with a range of industry professionals from the Sheffield Robotics institute, to employers like Thales UK, BAE and Network Rail to make the University of Sheffield a world leader in robotics.
As part of UK Robotics Week, Sheffield Robotics and CATCH will be hosting open labs on Monday 26th June.
Talks on Robotics and Social Care (1pm - 2pm)
Lecture Theatre Two, The Diamond, Leavygreave Road.
Professors Tony Prescott and Luc de Witte, as well as Sebastian Conran from Consequential Robotics, will be holding short talks about Robotics and Social Care. These talks will provide you with a great introduction to the labs.
Open Labs (2pm - 5pm)
The Sheffield Robotics Lab and Catch Home Lab will be open to staff, students and members of the public.
Sheffield Robotics: Robot Foundry (Pam Liversidge Building, Newcastle Street)
At the Robot Foundry, Sheffield Robotics researchers will be on hand to discuss the latest robotics research and give demonstrations from our wide range of projects.
CATCH: CATCH Home Lab (Innovation Centre, 217 Portobello Street)
The CATCH Home Lab will showcase demonstrations of robots linked with speech technology such as MiRo - our MiRo pet-like social companion robot.
Our Autonomous Systems and Robotics Research Group is investigating key research problems of sensing, control, decision making, and system integration.
Currently our academic and research staff are working on a number of projects, including:
- Distributed Sensing and Control of Multiagent Systems
- Self-Reconfiguring Autonomous Systems
- Self-Assembling Robotic Systems
- Swarm Robotic Systems
