Defining the next generation of systems at RACE

Will is currently working on a system to completely overhaul and refine how we use the work hall in RACE, our robotics research centre.

“When this project is finished mid-2022, we’ll be able to build cells to house our robots much more efficiently. I’m excited to see how our work will improve the existing systems in RACE, especially as this is a long-term project so the impact will be felt ten years from now.”
