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 industrial 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 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.
