1st ERL Smart CIties RObotics Challenge, Milton Keynes, UK, 2019

Smart cities are an innovative urban paradigm aiming at improving the city’s services and the citizens’ quality of life using a variety of technological infrastructures. The ERL Smart Cities introduces a new robotic challenge, focusing on showing how robots will integrate in the cities of the future as physical agents living in them.


Project to combine robotics and laser processing for aerospace

A new Innovate UK-funded collaborative project has launched to investigate combining a high speed, accurate and stiff robot with a laser processing capability for the manufacture of high-end aerospace structures. Laser processing has the potential to enable higher productivity manufacturing of both metallic and composite aerospace structures.
