WMR at Festival of the Imagination 17th October
WMR will be at the "Festival of the Imagination" on Saturday 17th October in Warwick Arts Centre at the University of Warwick. We will have our robots in the Helen Martin Studio, with Warwick's Computer Science department, all day and a talk on "Robots for Real" at 11.30 am. This is part of the university's 50th anniversary celebrations. The events are showcasing the work we do at Warwick through a diverse programme of events all focused around the central theme 'Imagining the Future'. So at WMR we not only like to imagine the future but go someway to bring that future to reality! Have a play with our mini rescue robots, Custard and Cream (because they have Raspberry Pi's), and see if they can rescue Robin?
Eureka Magazine Article with Maxon Motors
WMR are mentioned in the online trade magazine Eureka in association with Maxon Motor UK Ltd who have not only been great sponsors for the project over many years but also very helpful with their knowledge and technical support.
New team and Open day 20th September
New team of 4th year engineering students are due to start at the beginning of October. It will be up to them to decide where the project will head!
However, currently we are preparing for Warwick's open day where 100's of prospective engineers will be touring the workshop and attending talks. Open day is on Saturday 20th September.
After what can only be described as one of the busiest weeks of our lives, the WMR team has returned to the UK after an exhilarating week in Germany competing in the RoboCup German Open “Rescue Robot” category.
