Visit from Dongguan Delegation
In September 2017, a delegation from Dongguan, China, came to London to visit us and UCL. The Vice Mayor of Dongguan City lead the delegation; they were keen to learn about the UK’s capabilities in advanced manufacturing, engineering and industrial robots. As well as discussing our ideas and demonstrating our hardware, it was a great opportunity to identify future cooperation. Dongguan, as a ‘World Factory’, are hoping to upgrade their traditional industry and become a ‘Smart Manufacturer’. They were keen to learn and see smart machinery technologies, which is why they wanted to speak to us and learn more about our Smart Grasping System.
