Building the next generation of smart cobot systems

240523_Smarter_2Smart Factory Expo, part of Smart Manufacturing and Engineering Week 2024, will host the Made Smarter Innovation Showcase at this year’s event bringing the latest bleeding edge industrial technology to Birmingham’s NEC on 5-6 June.

Over the past four years, the Made Smarter Innovation Challenge has poured £120 million in funding into more than 60 groundbreaking projects. This investment has spurred an additional £130 million from industry partners, fostering a collaborative ecosystem of innovation.

A visit to the Made Smarter Innovation Showcase demonstrates how Innovate UK and its partners are revolutionising UK manufacturing and shaping a future that’s sustainable, productive, and globally competitive. More than 40 businesses will be on show grouped around the themes of net zero, people, productivity and resilience.

Several of the businesses focus on robotics including the Smart Cobotics Research Centre that aims to deliver solutions for building the next generation of smart, collaborative industrial robotic systems. At their stand they will be showcasing a drone used in inspection and repair, an example of a camera set-up used for human tracking and two robots – one of which demonstrates facial recognition and the other the range of flexibility in tactile grippers.
