Self-Repairing Cities Annual Event

Hornton Grange, University of Birmingham

The Robots for Self-Repairing Cities event will bring together researchers, industry and city makers to discuss the current challenges in maintaining city infrastructure systems and how state of the art robotic technologies can be used to address those challenges.

It is relevant for anyone who wishes to understand how robots can be used to improve infrastructure resilience now or in the near future, and the multiple benefits of this approach.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dr Kevin Paine, University of Bath, on self-healing materials
  • Dan Hook, ASV Global, on unmanned marine systems
  • Tony Rachwal, Director, UK Water Partnership, on water infrastructure
  • Graeme Cleeton, ULC Robotics
