Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) are technologies that can perform actions without human guidance. These robots can have various degrees of autonomy, from completing a repetitive task in a fixed and predictable environment to gathering information about different situations and deciding on the best course of action. Recent developments have thrust a wide range of new technologies and potential applications into the spotlight. These include advances in artificial intelligence, machine vision and physical movement technologies that are being combined to approach a wide variety of issues.
The Swansea Science Café offers opportunities for anyone to find out more about new, exciting and topical areas of science.
