Emerging trends and technologies in robotics research and prototyping are already fundamentally reshaping the way we live, work and realise our cities. This session explores the possibilities and implications of robotics in the built environment through the lenses of people, design and space.
Arup Futurist and Director for Global Foresight Dr Chris Luebkeman will share thoughts on future applications of robotics in the realms of automation, construction and design. Digital and UX leads will speak about the role of digital technologies in urban spaces. Daniel Messina will share his research at the intersection of digital tech and mechanical engineering, which led to the creation of Hermes, an autonomous 3D scanning robot.
