The second generation of robotics is now upon us, as end of line and bench robotics are becoming economically accessible, robotic integration within industry is no longer only associated with large scale production and automotive assembly lines. Pick and place single arm, multi-axis robots are more popular than ever as users see both their cost and operational benefits. Capable of working along-side humans they perform the repetitive precision work required, faster and without fault.
This hub is the place to find out more about robotics, whether its kits or design ideas you need, or simply to just discuss more about this technology. Check back for latest updates.

Awesome idea, sounds like this could become a useful tool to the authorities that currently look after beaches. Maybe solar power would help, certainly extend the life between recharges.
Great Idea! Your project should not end after finishing your MEng Study, This project should be supported by European Governments or even by Managers of big companys.I know that beaches everywehre are...
Keep up the good work, Bill!
I wouldn’t mind my own Iron Man style flying suit. That’s human shaped and robotics right?
I'd send a robot me to work and see if they notice
We are a team of just under 30 engineers from the University of Sheffield and we will be taking part in the European Rover Challenge. This article goes over the basics of what we aim to achieve and who we are as a team.
When DesignSpark regular, Dr Bill Marshall, reached out to us with a request to help support the crowdfunding activities of The OU Planetary Robotics Student team we were delighted to be in a position to offer some help.
We're a group of four MEng Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Students at Strathclyde University in Glasgow, UK and our final year group project involves designing and building a prototype for a beach cleaning robot - which is novel!

I was given the opportunity to revisit the Titan II truck on the 20th and 21st September and I jumped at the chance to go back!
The concept of robotics has been around a little bit longer than you might think, so is giving the engineers of tomorrow a decent foothold in the technology a good idea?
Last year the Intel Neural Compute Stick was the worlds first AI accelerator available in USB format. It's just been given an upgrade!
Recently, the World’s most powerful Neuromorphic computer was fired up for the first time. What does it do and are we all doomed?
