Project Abstract

The project two opportunities, both of which will be further developed during the course of this PSAF project. The first of these relates to industrial robots, where the end-effector is used in “pick-and-place” applications. The second opportunity is in mobile robots, which have the capability to move around in their environment and are not fixed to one physical location.
