Course Description

Discover how we use robots now and into the future.

Once only found in fiction, robots are being applied in an increasing array of ways in society, from mechanisation of industrial tasks to exploring places humans can’t go. This course starts with your perceptions of robotics, describes different types of robots, and leads into a discussion of the future: knowing we can use robots, should we? We then use case studies to show how robotics is being applied to help solve key issues facing society today: food production, aging populations, transport, and environmental change.

This course is for anyone interested in discovering how our society currently uses robots and how we might use them to solve big challenges in the future. You don’t need any robotics knowledge or experience to join in this course.

Everything you need to succeed in this course is provided. There is no specific equipment or software required.
