The U.K. this month is launching its first-ever Robotics Week — an initiative that seeks to stimulate interest in future robotics by the general public and the media. It will take the form of a series of events and seminars held across the country focusing on a variety of themes, including digital manufacturing, intelligent mobility, and agricultural technology.
Another key aim of the initiative is to engage young people in robotics, said Christos Bergeles, lecturer in the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at University College London and a member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Robotics and Mechatronics Technical and Professional Network (TPN). U.K. Robotics Week runs from June 25 to July 1.
“Robotics and autonomous systems are really exciting technologies and have been identified as key to future U.K. growth, so it is vital that we showcase the latest innovations and get young people thinking and talking about robotics,” he said.
