Robots that work together
Tuesday 28 September 2021, 5.00pm to 5.50pm BST
What happens when robots work together to achieve complex tasks, and how do we program our robots to work together efficiently?
In this talk, Dr Prorok will explore how new algorithms for coordination can help us solve some of the most pressing problems in transport and logistics
