The National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) showed interest in the robot control strategies developed by the University of Strathclyde.
The demos showed live machine vision object tracking (Dr Jaime Zabalza), robotic object following and dynamic obstacle avoidance demos. NNL allowed the use of one of their KUKA robotic cells for the preparation and delivery of the demos. The robot in use was a KUKA KR180 robot equipped with KUKA RSI software add-on.
The proposed work (comprising the required preparation, the seminar and the demos) was delivered in a period of three consecutive days.
