Robots for Resilient Infrastructure

‘In the air, on the ground, underground and underwater – robots to create, inspect, repair and maintain the physical infrastructure of our everyday lives’
A two day challenge event to bring academics, industry, policy makers and stakeholders together to explore a future use of robots in the creation, inspection, repair and maintenance of critical infrastructure. Application areas are across broad domains including civil infrastructure, transport (rail, road, sea), offshore energy, space, and nuclear.
The challenge is supported by The Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) through the Grand Challenge of “Balancing the Impact of City Infrastructure Engineering on Natural Systems using Robots” and EPSRC investment in capital equipment. It is organised in collaboration with the UK RAS Network and UK Robotics Week.
As a delegate
See live demonstrations of robots, find out more information on the latest robotic technology, and discuss future challenges. The free-to-attend two day event will feature keynote presentations from leading academics, industrialists and policy makers.
As a competitor
We are seeking entries from robotic researchers around the world who wish to demonstrate their robotic technologies to delegates at the event. Entries will be judged by a panel of leading academics and industrialists on the basis of innovation, potential for impact, and style. Prizes awarded will be awarded for the best entrants! The competition is free to enter and competition attendees will be provided with free bed and breakfast in on campus facilities.
