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.
The workshop is open to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) across Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire - including sole traders, start-ups, micros, social enterprises and established companies - andwill 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. The content is relevent for all sorts of business - from those interested in automation for manufacturing, to those who would like to use robotics for experimental or creative purposes.
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 workshop is offered by the SABRE Programme, a £1m ERDF-funded initiative for SMEs in the West of England. Places are limited to one delegate per organisation.
