Webinar: From Force to Touch – Shadow Robot
From Force to Touch: New technologies for highly dexterous teleoperation
Thursday 4th June 2020
11am – 12pm
Rich Walker, Managing Director of Shadow Robot will be diving into specific pain points within the nuclear-decommissioning industry and how we can solve them using the Tactile Telerobot, an advanced teleoperation and telepresence system. The trailblazing technology can transform work within risky environments, adding a layer of safety between the worker and the radiation zone as well as increasing precision and accuracy within glovebox-related tasks.
Rich Walker has worked in robotics for over 20 years and leads the team at Shadow who are developing new robots/applications for robotics. He’s active in developing and implementing European (FP7 and now Horizon 2020) and TSB/Innovate UK projects. He sits on the on the Innovate UK “Robotics and Autonomous Systems” SIG Advisory Board, which lets him influence the direction the UK takes in robotics in a way that makes sense to SMEs and innovators, as well as being a Director of EuRobotics, and various EPSRC and University networks and committees around robotics.
