UK lays out plans to test robots in full view of the public

The British are doing quite well with their robotics particularly when it comes to automotive, aerospace, medical and military applications. This is because people there have been keen on this subject since quite a long time and now the groups which are behind this ‘robotic innovation’ in the UK have devices what is known to be their first robotics strategy and it has been named as RAS 2020 (Robotics and Autonomous Systems).

His strategy is going to help with the development and testing of the robots and the interesting part is that all this is not only going to be carried out in the laboratories but also out in the wild. All this has been done while keeping in mind the real-world test zones where machines of the future can be put through their paces in plain view of the public. The document also focuses on the larger corporations which want to conduct robotic testing in countries where regulations support public testing. This has gotten full support from the UK government which has declared that it will look to change the road laws so car manufacturers can test their driverless cars on the roads.

But roads are not the only possible spots for robot testing. Other sites could include airports, hospitals, farms, production lines, refineries and nuclear plants. For all these sites, proper strategies would have to be in place to support the great challenges which will come ahead.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
