Open Assisted Living Lab seeks solutions to care sector's COVID-19 crisis

Dr Mauro Dragone, Assistant Professor from Heriot-Watt University is one of the scientists launching the open and remote access living lab to research how to create how to create affordable and socially acceptable solutions for Ambient Assisted Living (OpenAAL).

This project is funded by EPSRC and will run for 10 months, ending in April 2021.

More information on the project can be found here.

UK Government Minister for Scotland visits the Centre

UK Government Minister Robin Walker was given a tour of Heriot-Watt University’s world leading robotics facilities as he discussed progress on the creation of a National Robotarium.

The proposed facility, which is supported with £21 million from the UK Government, will be a world-class hub, developing and utilising the next generation of robot technology which has the potential to transform lives, industry and our economy.
