The Centre for Advanced Robotics @ Queen Mary (ARQ) is a cross-faculty multidisciplinary research centre which brings under one roof the different robotics-related activities performed at the Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). The main objective of ARQ is to facilitate collaborations within QMUL to reach critical mass and maximise societal impact. While interacting with different stakeholders from the industry and from the society at large, the members of ARQ provide world-class research and deliver advanced teaching programmes to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The Centre is home to more than 50 researchers, including academics, research assistants and PhD students.

In this webinar, you will learn more about our research activities in the areas of soft robotics, human-robot interaction, robotic solutions for hazardous environments, robots for industrial manufacturing, space robotics, robotic locomotion, assistive robotics, cognitive robotics, artificial intelligence, tactile sensing, haptics, Virtual Reality and wearable technologies.
