Event description

Description

As part of the annual UK robotics week, Centre for Advanced Robotics @ Queen Mary University of London (ARQ) is organising the open day event to raise the awareness of robotics. Interested public is invited to visit newly opened robotics lab. We will demonstrate their latest projects, and visitors will have the opportunity to ask questions directly from the researchers. We will show how we see the future, and how robotics can change the environment around us.

The demonstrations in the laboratory space will be followed by public engagement talks on robotics from QMUL researchers in Octagon. The public and QMUL researchers will be able to communicate during the networking reception which will also be merged with the interactive robotics demonstrations installed.

Where: QMUL Mile End campus, Octagon (talks) and Robotics lab visit (Eng. build, G12)

When: Thu, June 29, 2017, 14:00-15:30 (lab visit) and 16:00-20:00 (in Octagon)
