Providing a practical introduction to the topic of industrial robotics, the Somerset Energy Innovation Centre (delivered by SWMAS) 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 BRL 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 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.
