Introduction To Robotics Workshop

March 26, 2019 - March 27, 2019

Providing a practical introduction to the topic of industrial robotics, the Somerset Energy Innovation Centre has teamed up with engineers at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory RIFBristol facility to deliver this two-day interactive workshop.

An overview of the current state of the robotics sector and a tour of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory will get you thinking about the opportunities robotics can present for your business. With your interest primed, the team will then guide you through some of the different approaches to selecting, implementing and operating robotic techonologies before getting 'hands on' with two different robot arms.

The practical tasks offer an insight into hardware and software options and introduce you to possible operating systems. With the chance, too, to question experienced technicians, this is a tangible opportunity to develop your understanding of how you could utilise robotics for the benefit of manufacturing, innovation and research.

With a basic grounding in the concepts, opportunities and operational considerations, you'll leave with the practical knowledge and increased confidence required to make informed decisions about the potential adoption of cutting-edge robotic technology in your business.


The Somerset Energy Innovation Centre is offering fully funded places on this expert workshop for eligible SME's. Contact Ben Powis for more details and to book your place: ben.powis@swmas.co.uk | 01278 767000.
