News | Posted on Tuesday 10 March 2020

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:

This activity was funded by The University of York's EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account, the Department of Computer Science, and the RoboStar group.
