Robots are set to impact on all aspects of our lives, from robotic exoskeletons which enhance our strength and mobility to robots that search for life in the Solar System and beyond.
Through the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, the largest robotics laboratory of its kind in the UK, Bristol is at the forefront of the robotics revolution. This innovative and spearheading adventure is the result of the partnership between the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England.
It is conceivable that in the next few decades, capable and intelligent robotic devices will be interacting, serving and cooperating with people in complex and home tasks.
Our research in robotics spans many key areas from soft actuators to safe systems and control, flying robots and vision for robotics.
These exciting topics feed directly into all areas of Engineering and our members include staff from Computer Science, Mechanical, Electronics and Aerospace Engineering as well as Engineering Maths. In addition, we keep close ties with colleagues that study the Psychology of Human - Robot interactions, as well as a variety of applications from robotics for the home, medical rehabilitation and agricultural robots among others.
