Introduction to Robotics
Free workshop for SMEs in the West of England
Date: Thursday, 28th and Friday, 29th March 2019
Location: Bristol Robotics Laboratory, UWE Bristol, Frenchay Campus
Time: 10:00 – 16:00 (both days)
Engineers from the Bristol Robotics Laboratory will deliver this free two-day workshop, which provides a practical introduction to the topic of industrial robotics.
Whatever your level of experience or ability, you will have the chance to get ‘hands on’ with our robot arms, gaining an insight into different hardware options and operating systems, while being able to question experienced technicians.
Open to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) across Bristol, Bath, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, the workshop will be held in the RIFBristol workspace – a supportive environment in which to learn the basics of robotics.
The agenda provides an overview of the robotics sector, a tour of the Laboratory and an opportunity to carry out practical tasks with three different robot arms.
We aim to provide a grounding in the concepts, opportunities and operational considerations involved in using robots for innovation and research – helping to de-risk potential hardware purchases by increasing knowledge and confidence.
The free, two-day workshop if offered by the SABRE Programme, the Bristol Robotics Laboratory’s £1m ERDF-funded initiative for SMEs in the West of England. Places are limited to the first six registrations, and to one delegate per organisation.
