Talk Title: Food for Thought
Abstract: The future of food security in the midst of a changing climate and an uncertain economy. We delve into the UK food market and how we can tackle topics like Brexit, unsustainable production, and changing societal mindsets with exciting new technologies and agricultural practices.
13:15 - 13:55
The Shadow Robotic Company Ltd //
Talk Title: Why is tactile sensing for touch important in robotics?
Abstract: Equipping robots with sensory modalities is a popular research area – Vision being the popular, next comes sense of touch or haptics followed by sense of smell and so on. This talk will take the audience through the story of Shadow's Telerobot and how can the Telerobot that can transmit the sense of touch be helpful in industrial applications
14:45 - 15:25
The Small Robot Company //
Talk Title: a history of Tom from concept to the latest third generation robot
Abstract: Multisensory Farmbots: turning data into action with weed-electrocution and slug elimination. Meet Small Robot Company's multisensory monitoring robot Tom - now delivering a robotic Per Plant Farming service. Tom is now on farms gathering a variety of data - including vision, sensors and geolocation - with sound and soil probes soon to follow. Find out how SRC designed the concept and developed this from concept to prototype. Learn more about the thinking behind the current commercial product - and meet the latest generation
16:15 - 16:55
Talk Title: Autonomy & Natural Intelligence
Abstract: Autonomy solutions face the triple barriers of robustness, scalability, and efficiency: Opteran Technologies has reverse engineered the insect brain to embed nature's solution to these problems into deployable silicon devices. In this presentation I will explain how our approach to autonomy differs from the existing state of the art, and how this can help the world to build better robots.
