Here’s an interesting video from an IET event held in Bristol in early October. Mike Aldered talks through the story and development behind the 360 eye, and highlights lots of interesting things surrounding the development of robots from a company perspective.
Mike does a great job does illustrating some of the differences in the conceptual problems that academia addresses, and the real challenges faced when applying some of the solutions to real-world problems. Makes me want to point to my last post again. Ask yourself how can you apply your research to the real world? It is worth thinking about!
