The RAS (Robotics & Autonomous Systems) labs focus on larger scale industrial robotics. The double height space can be used for testing on drones, and roller shutter doors open to the back of the building allowing large equipment into the space for research and testing.
The Ultra labs – precision laser application labs – research and manufacture things on the micro scale, fitted with state of the art equipment. Strategically located close to the RAS labs for collaboration between the two departments.
The HRI department concentrates on human experience; a place to study interaction between robots and people together. The space has been designed to test study how robots will behave in different situations in everyday life, so spaces have the potential to be set up daily life settings, such as a supermarket aisle or hospital settings, as well as built in assisted living apartment.
