This set of workshops will bring stakeholders together to discuss how humans interact with robots now and in the future. Optimising the way humans and robots interact is fundamental to their usage and effectiveness in nuclear environments. In all research areas of the RAIN Hub feedback and discussion with industry stakeholders is invaluable. This is our first session focusing on Human-Robot Interaction (HRI). Over two days (Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th September) we will host 7 separate online sessions, each diving into 1 of 7 research themes.
The event aims to:
- Strengthen existing, and create new, links between industry and academia
- Create a HRI network for the UK’s Nuclear industry
- Talk to industry about the current ongoing research across UK universities
- Improve our understanding of the current industrial challenges, informing future research
