Robotic and automation open day
showcase research and educational activities in the area of robots and automation.
Robots and automation are increasing becoming an essential part of our life and economy. Application areas include medical surgery, traffic management, agriculture, environmental monitoring, marine exploration, aerospace, and manufacturing. The robotics and automation open day at Queen’s University Belfast aims to showcase our research and educational activities in this exciting and rapidly growing field.
On the day, you will find out the vision for robots in factories of the future, how they interact with humans and the environment, how to program robots, and how to build one from scratch. You will also have the chance to have a go on a Segway and try our robot assisted Virtual Reality systems. Throughout the day there will be a series of mini-lectures covering topics from robotics and virtual reality research at Queen’s University Belfast, to intelligent manufacturing, internet of things and industry 4.0.
