Robotic and autonomous systems, identified by the UK Government in 2012 as one of the Eight Great Technologies, are revolutionising our lives, the economy and human society. At Leeds we are driving innovation in this growing area of technology leveraging a network of more than 100 researchers across multiple disciplines with a shared interest in robotics and artificial intelligence. We are performing world leading research in medical robotics, field and infrastructure robotics, artificial intelligence and enabling technologies for autonomy in robotics.
Our industrial partners, researchers and students can access a suite of technologies for robot design and construction that is among the most advanced in the world. Our national Robotics Facility is backed by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) as part of the Government’s drive to improve Britain’s international competitiveness in robotics.
The University of Leeds is an outstanding environment to advance robotics science and make a concrete impact on society thanks to the unique breadth of capabilities and resources available on campus.
