Many autonomous systems and robotic platforms work fantastically in the lab environment yet flounder in the real world. Our Centre for Autonomous Robotics (CENTAUR) is using its experience and expertise in both platforms and analysis to focus on real-world deployments. Our aim is to set ourselves apart in the UK research landscape from other robotics-focused centres.
