Bringing together a world-class community
in Robotics & Autonomous Systems

Our vision is to bring togther an integrated community of entrepreneurs,
innovators, researchers and potential end users to create a vision for the emerging industrial Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) sector in the UK.


The Robotics and Autonomous Systems Special Interest Group was established on 1 January 2013 in a partnership between the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and the Knowledge Transfer Networks.

Drawing on a core group of experts, leading industrialists and academics, the SIG's aim is to stimulate collaboration and innovation in RAS capabilities, which are required to underpin multiple industrial sectors, leading to increased productivity and growth. The SIG runs until the end of 2015, when a review of its work will be undertaken to inform future support and intervention.
