From Force to Touch: New technologies for highly dexterous teleoperation

Thursday 4th June 2020
11am – 12pm

delivered by
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.
