Robotics: How can we control and shape our future with robots?

How will robots affect our future? Whether you imagine them tidying your home, being part of the production line in a factory, servicing in a hospital, or deriving your cars on the road, robots are here to stay and will play a huge part in our world.

In this taster session we will explore how to design and drive the behaviour of robots to improve our lives. We will also present how we envisage robots to deliver the medicine of tomorrow to targeted and precise parts in our bodies. You will be able to acquire a taste of the engineering skills on how to build and control robots in fundamental tasks across these domains. As a prospective engineer of tomorrow, you will have the opportunity to glimpse an exciting future world with robots and feel in control of this technology.
