In 2021 the UK-RAS Network launched Robot Lab Live, the UK’s first ever mass simultaneous robotics livestream event, featuring sixteen of the UK’s top robotics groups.

Robot Lab Live is a virtual robotics showcase featuring the UK’s top robotics research groups. During this 2-hour livestream event, teams show-off their cutting-edge robots and autonomous systems to members of the public on YouTube, offering audience members the chance to flick between demos on everything from an egg-frying robot to a remotely-controlled underwater vehicle.
