Robotics & Control Lab


Fulton Building



City Campus

You will have access to a range of robotic development kits, including large industrial robotic arms to autonomous vehicles constructed and controlled using Lego Mindstorm. You can use various interfaces to programme and test functional systems and you can embed sensors and actuators to control robotic devices.

Software such as Labview and C programming allows students to compile instructions to control the sensors and actuators via microcontroller boards allowing devices to be programmed to undertake a range of tasks.
