Here are the many ways in which we support academic growth in robotics.
Universities across the globe buy our robot Hands for research and development purposes, and we get mentioned in a lot of research papers. Our team of dedicated engineers are continuously developing and improving our technology which gives them key insights to produce research papers too. You can find some of our most notable papers here.
Our Hand is fully integrated with ROS, and we make available solid models and code. You can download and start using a virtual model of the Hand in ROS right now. Control of our robot Hand, including position control algorithms, can be modified by the user in ROS. Firmware within the Hand itself can be made available for modification.
We can offer an academic discount for universities and other academic institutions looking to buy our robot Hand. To see how our robot Hands can help your academic community and read relevant case studies, see our robotics research page.
We advise those interested in keeping an eye on our join our team page where we post all our job and internship opportunities. If we haven’t got anything going at the time, the page also has an option to register your interest.
Please note, the following initiatives are often on a case by case basis:
Our Managing Director, Rich Walker is a natural-born speaker often approached to present at various educational events. He’s recently spoken at:
Members of our team are encouraged to go into schools with our robot Hand and teach young children more about robotics. This includes how the machines work along with what they can do.
Our Business Development Manager and a STEM ambassador, Dr Radhika Gudipati often visits local schools to help inspire more girls to take up STEM-related careers. As a woman in tech herself and having a PhD in Robotics, she makes a great role model for young girls, and her friendly persona makes her easy to approach.
