Project: Funded ProjectResearch

2/10/17 → …

The National Centre for Nuclear Robotics (NCNR) is a consortium of eight universities, including Lancaster University, and led by the University of Birmingham. The NCNR is developing state-of-the-art robotics, sensing and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies to address the major societal challenges posed by nuclear environments and materials. The NCNR will transfer these robotics and AI research advances into practical solutions for a safety-critical and high-consequence industry. Within the NCNR, Lancaster University will contribute to research on Mobility and Navigation, Grasping and Manipulation, and the Integration, Standardisation and Modularity of the developed technologies, among other areas.
