In the future, robots and autonomous systems will be more involved in our lives. They will support our independence as we age, work closely alongside us, and operate in emergency situations while we keep safely away. These new roles demand much more intelligent interaction between robots and their surroundings and people. In short, they must be more adaptable, and this is the theme of the FARSCOPE CDT. Run by the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, a partnership between the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England, FARSCOPE brings together 50 academics across many disciplines. The CDT takes a broad view of robotics, developing researchers whose expertise can be applied across many different domains. To this end, FARSCOPE’s programme combines individual research with a taught programme of fundamentals, opportunities to work with or even start businesses, and group activities to foster cross-disciplinary awareness.
