Spotlight on: Robotics and AI

In conjunction with the recent launch of our new Centre for Robotics and AI, in this Research Spotlight we’re giving just a glimpse of the huge range of work we do in this area.

We are creating innovative solutions to many enormously important challenges. Some of the robots we are developing with our many industrial partners can reduce humans’ need to work in dangerous environments. Others will support the development of the next generation of vehicles in space. With these robots and more, we are at the centre of robotics and AI research around Britain.
