Ready the final report on ICSR 2013 International Conference on Social Robotics held on 27-29 October 2013, Bristol, UK
You, robot Robot residencies at the Science Museum, October 2015-April 2016.
In 2015, the Science Museum will be mounting a major exhibition on the history of robots. You, robot will explore how our human self-perception has been manipulated, codified and projected in new robotic forms over hundreds of years. And, most intriguingly, it’ll explore questions of why we are fascinated by robots, machines that may look or behave like us.
Anthropomorphism remains a uniquely human characteristic, but while the human form has long been a central subject of art, portrait and sculpture, it has also been a central concern of mechanism. This will be the first time the subject has been explored in an exhibition.
I am honoured to serve the Robotics and Mechatronics TNP as the Chairman in 2014. This is an exciting time for robotics in particular and for mechatronics in general. This is represented by the establishment of Public-Private Partnership in Robotics by European Commission and organisations representing European industry and European...
On 2nd September, as part of the TAROS 2014 Conference, Dr Sethu Vijayakumar gave the IET/TAROS Public Lecture and delivered a fascinating insight into how robots have increasingly made the journey from industry floors to our homes. Some examples given included self-driving vehicles, prosthetic devices, surgical assistants and...
This Network strives to co-ordinate the fragmented groups representing the UK Robotics and Mechatronics community to raise the profile globally and facilitate knowledge sharing in a way that is relevant, flexible and innovative.
Humanoid robotics projects
Various global humanoid projects, which have provided further advancement to the area of humanoid robotics, are listed in these pages.
The iCub project
The iCub is the humanoid robot developed at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) as part of the EU project RobotCub and subsequently adopted by more than 20 laboratories worldwide.
The Era of Social Robots
The Wills Memorial building was the backdrop to the packed out Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS) IET Public Lecture: Era of Social Robots delivered by Professor Shuzi Sam Ge, Director of Social Robotics Lab, Institute of Interactive Digital Media at the National University of Singapore.
These pages contain an overview of the various researches and projects being undertaken in the field of cybernetics.
