Robotics and autonomous system Dissemination event

25 May 2017

Register now External link to attend this interactive event, which will include presentations, panels, videos, animations and live demos, as well as the chance to get a ticket to see the Science’s Museum’s blockbuster Robots Exhibition External link on the same day!

This event will showcase the results of four academic-led feasibility studies funded through a £250,000 research competition run in 2016 by RSSB, through RRUKA.

The competition sought blue-sky ideas for using robotics and autonomous systems for rolling stock maintenance, servicing and inspection, with a focus on key industry challenges such as: reducing maintenance time to improve capacity; reducing whole-life costs; and improving safety by enhancing the reliability of rolling stock inspections.

Join us at the Science Museum on 25 May (12:00 to 16:30) to find out more about:

  • The potential for using automated inspection and additive manufacturing for wheelset repairs (University of Birmingham)
  • How big data and artificial intelligence can be applied to non-destructive testing of wheelsets (Southampton Solent University)
  • Designs for anautonomous system to service fluids on passenger trains (Brunel University)
    the mechanical and software challenges of creating a fully autonomous cab-front cleaning robot (Cranfield University)
