Robots: from science fiction to reality
Although robotics is a well-established and successful technology it is currently going through a big change. Relatively unintelligent robots have been working in industry for years. But that is changing. Robots are moving out of factories and warehouses and into homes, hospitals and offices. A second wave of robotics has started in which robots are mobile and, most importantly, must now work alongside people. These next generation intelligent robots must be able to safely and naturally interact with humans. In this talk I will show the state-of-the-art in intelligent robots, illustrated with examples from both current research and emerging real-world applications. I will show how new biologically inspired approaches have radically changed the way we design robots, and that real robots are much more surprising and interesting than their science fiction counterparts.
