Robots will revolutionise the world's economy and society over the next twenty years, working for us, beside us and interacting with us. The CDT in Robotics and Autonomous Systems in Edinburgh will address key challenges for managing interactions between robots and their environments, between multiple autonomous systems, and between robots and humans. The centre will equip graduates with technical skills and industry awareness to create an innovation pipeline from academic research to global markets, combining scientific leadership with extensive industrial engagement to ground research and training in real world challenges. This will be supported by world class infrastructure, enhanced through the recent £6.1 million EPSRC capital grant ROBOTARIUM.
