YorRobots exhibition 2020 a great success
The YorRobots Exhibition was held in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York on Friday 28 February 2020.
Academics from Chemistry, Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, Environment & Geography, Philosophy, Psychology, and Sociology within the University of York shared their current research and challenges in the area of robotics, along with industry representatives from D-RisQ, Dyson, RACE, Rolls-Royce, Shadow Robots, and Thales.
Many of the demonstrations and posters were presented by those who have either had funding from YorRobots (three Computer Science students who are entering the Pi Wars competition in Cambridge in March 2020), or attended one of the YorRobots Sandpits in 2019.
The event was well attended, with energy and enthusiasm from all participants. Presentation slides are available below:
- Robotics and AI in Extreme Environments - Rob Skilton
- Safe Robotics and Autonomous Systems at York - Ana MacIntosh
- Robostar Technologies Software Engineering for Robotics - Ana Cavalcanti
- Autonomous Robot Evolution: Cradle to Grave - Andy Tyrrell
- Snake Robotics for Jet Engine Maintenance - James Kell
- Robot Hands with Tactile Sensing for Extreme Environments - Rich Walker
- Molecules Made by Robots - Ian Fairlamb
- Social and Ethical Dimensions in Robotics - Darren Reed
- Certification of Autonomous Systems through the use of DO-178C - Colin O'Halloran
- Responsibility in Robotics - Zoe Porter
This activity was funded by The University of York's EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account, the Department of Computer Science, and the RoboStar group.
