As part of the Robotics Summer Showcase 2021, the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and CSI:Cobot project are jointly hosting a manufacturing robotics challenge for young researchers, developers, and industrialists working in robotics and digital manufacturing technologies.
The challenge will be held remotely from the 19th to the 21st of July on the theme of collaborative robot safety. Participants will use digital twinning technology to develop solutions to the provided challenges, and drive real hardware at Factory 2050 in Sheffield. The event will bring together early career researchers and engineers from across disciplines to develop practical solutions to real-world problems in a competitive environment.
The event is open to final-year masters students, PhD students, early-career researchers, industrial engineers and others with relevant experience in areas including robotics, autonomous systems, computer vision, machine learning, augmented reality, and safety. Successful applicants will be arranged into small teams, based on skills and experience, and will compete against each other to complete a series of robotics challenges.
