Royal Society Exhibition
ORCA Hub exhibited at The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London from 1st to 7th July 2019.
"Robots in the Danger Zone"
Our interactive exhibit "Robots in the Danger Zone" showed - in miniature - the goals of ORCA and how robots can be used in hazardous offshore environments for guidance, navigation and control.
The aim of our exhibition was to provide a hands-on experience for visitors using interactive technology and features three interactive zones including a small-scale mock-up oil platform and wind turbines.
Visitors to our stand had an opportunity to drive Cozmo robots and over the weekend (6 & 7 July) the ANYmal robot was at the Royal Society building entrance with our University of Oxford team to greet all the visitors to the Exhibition.
Due to COVID-19, The Royal Society were unable to run their 2020 Exhibition in its usual format so moved Summer Science online. As a 2019 exhibitor, we were asked to take part in one of a series of online sessions called "What are they up to now?" to give viewers a taste of what last year's participating researchers have been doing in the past 12 months.
