Autonomous driving, domestic assistance, health care, industrial manufacturing, search and rescue operations and much more. Robots are the future.

The Essex Robotics group concerns with the development of various kinds of embedded systems and intelligent robots that will be used in environments coexisting with humans. These systems and robots are mobile, autonomous, interactive and intelligent, and will be useful assistants / companions for people in different ages, situations, activities and environments in order to improve the quality of life.

The Essex Robotics group is one of the large mobile robotics groups in the UK, with advanced mobile robotics research facilities. Our Robot Arena is one hundred square meteres in area and has a six metre high ceiling to accommodate flying robots. It has one of the world's largest powered lab floors for long-duration experiments with mobile robots.

We have invested over £1 million in equipping this state-of-the-art facility with robotic systems which include: collaborative table-top robot UR3, industrial robot Baxter, humanoid robot Pepper and NAO, mobile robots, flying robots, robotic fish, intelligent wheelchairs, and so on.
