Royal Society Exhibition

ORCA Hub will be exhibiting at The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London from Monday 1 July to Sunday 7 July 2019.

"Robots in the Danger Zone"

Our interactive exhibit "Robots in the Danger Zone" will show - 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 will be 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 will have an opportunity to drive a Cozmo robot through our maze and on the final weekend (6 & 7 July) the ANYmal robot will be on show at the Exhibition entrance with our University of Oxford team.
