Autonomous robots will be attending the UK’s largest tech event

Autonomous robots will be attending the UK’s largest tech event

A team of football-playing robots from The University of Edinburgh are attending TechWorld (16-17 November 2011, ExCel, London), the UK’s largest international technology event, to showcase their skills to more than 2,000 investors, business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs from more than 50 countries.

In July the robots took part in RoboCup – the robot football World Cup – at Istanbul, Turkey. Dr Subramanian Ramamoorthy, assistant professor at The University of Edinburgh said, “We are working on developing autonomous robots, which can respond independently to situations, and for the first year a British team of physical robots participated in a football league.

Playing football is the starting point to developing algorithms that enable robots to interact with each other, and humans, in circumstances such as rescues.” TechWorld showcases the best of British technology to global organisations, helping businesses and academia in the UK to attract investment, joint ventures and business deals.

Dr Ramamoorthy hopes that attending the event will enable him to meet prospective partners or sponsors ready for next year’s RoboCup, which is taking place in Mexico. He added: “We believe that TechWorld provides us with the perfect platform to present our work to an international audience. Our priority is to speak with delegates interested in collaborating with our research. The algorithms we are developing can work with any robotic application, so exhibiting to such a wide audience means that we will hopefully meet a number of potential partners. We are also looking for funders who can support our work.”

John Davies, Global Strategy and Technology Adviser at UKTI, said: “The UK’s expertise in robotic technology is significant and continuing to grow, as demonstrated by the great work accomplished at the University of Edinburgh. We are looking forward to seeing the robots in action at TechWorld – there are 2,000 delegates attending the event, and I am sure most of them will be heading to the University’s stand to take a look.”
