Attend The Event
As a delegate
See live demonstrations of robots, find out more information on the latest robotic technology, and discuss future challenges. The free-to-attend two day event will feature keynote presentations from leading academics, industrialists and policy makers. During the event, you will have an opportunity to present posters on technological innovations or scientific positions.
As a competitor
We are seeking entries from robotic researchers around the world who wish to demonstrate their robotic technologies to delegates at the event. Entries will be judged by a panel of leading academics and industrialists on the basis of innovation, potential for impact, and style. Prizes awarded will be awarded for the best entrants! The competition is free to enter and competition attendees will be provided with free bed and breakfast in on campus facilities.
It is a freestyle competition, and we welcome entries of all robotic systems with the potential to impact on the challenges facing future infrastructure.
The competition will operate a two stage process:
i) You will submit a video of your robot and a short description of its purpose and function. The videos will be judged and finalists will be invited to demonstrate their robots at the infrastructure challenge event in Leeds, UK.
ii) A judging panel of leading robotic and infrastructure experts will observe your robots in action and prizes will be awarded.
Appropriate demonstration environments will be created by the local team and they will ensure as far as possible that correct support systems are available to operate your robots. There are a range of air and ground robots available to support demonstrations by mounting sensors or demonstrate particular algorithms (for example UAVs such as DJI SJ1000 and Inspire; Husky Ground robot; and Denso robot arms).
