We would like to welcome (Chris) Xiaoxuan Lu as a supervisor for the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics! He is the new Lecturer in Cyber-Physical Systems in the School of Informatics at The University of Edinburgh. His research interests broadly lie in mobile autonomy, perception and sensing (MAPS), with the focus on spatial AI under visual degradation, fog Robotics and edge IoT, RF and multi-modal sensor fusion; secure and privacy-aware autonomous systems.
On September 22nd the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics and The Alan Turing Institute will be hosting exciting talk with guest Marc Raibert from Boston Dynamics. You can register here.
Turing Lecture: Building dynamic robots
The finale in the Turing Lecture mini-series exploring the role of AI and data science in our lives post-lockdown.
We are pleased to announce the arrival of Talos, a high performance humanoid robot standing at 1.75m tall as the newest addition to the robotics research lab at the University of Edinburgh.
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.
Centre Academics, Dr Mauro Dragone and Dr Christian Dondrup presented at one of the sessions at the 2019 Digital Health and Care Fest on Thursday 21st November.
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.
