Robot Lab Live Highlights - A day out in the museum with robots

Cultural experiences, such as going to a museum, can have a positive effect on your wellbeing.

However, guided visits are not always accessible for everybody, often leaving vulnerable members of society feeling excluded. Robotics has the potential to make the experience more engaging by personalising the experience to each visitor. They can also enable access to different audiences that would otherwise not be able to experience them, such as disabled people and people with social anxiety. In this demo, we will showcase how this can be achieved in a public museum with a mobile robot and a telepresence robot.

Robot Lab Live is a virtual robotics showcase, hosted by the UK-RAS Network, and featuring some of the UK’s top robotics labs. Now in its third year, the event brings cutting-edge robotics technology to audiences around the world.
