This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, celebrating the country’s leading social science research and demonstrating how the work of social scientists has a real impact on our lives

What springs to mind when you hear the word Automation? If it is robots, then you are in luck!

This event will showcase a drone and dog robot among others from Robotics at Leeds.

But automation in life is about so much more than just demonstrations of robotics as it is a topical theme that will increasingly ‘interact’ with us from driverless vehicles to self-healing cities.

The day will consist of talks, activities, a tour of VirtuoCity (a world-leading facility in city simulation for transport research), demonstrations, and breakout session to generate discussion on the theme of automation.

This event is open to all.
