About this Event

If it is robots, then you are in luck! We will be showcasing robots from Robotics at Leeds. But automation in Life is about so much more than just demonstrations of robotics as it is a topical theme that will increasingly ‘interact’ with us from driverless vehicles to self-healing cities. The day will consist of exciting talks, activities and tours.

What can you get from attending this event ?

This will be an opportunity to start a conversation between researchers and attendees. There will be a chance to ask questions, discuss topical themes, get hands on and see the latest research undertaken in automation. A day to discover automation, develop your knowledge and interest and help create new vocations for this exciting area !
