Jacobs at TAROS 2023

by Kayleigh Jackson

Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS) is the leading academic robotics and automation conference in the UK, and this year was held in the University of Cambridge from the 13th to the 15th September. It is the longest-running UK-hosted international conference on Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS), which is aimed at the presentation and discussion of the latest results and methods in autonomous robotics research and applications.

TAROS offers a friendly environment for robotics researchers and industry to take stock and plan future progress. It welcomes senior researchers and research students alike and specifically provides opportunities for research students and young research scientists to present their work to the scientific community.

This year, the TAROS conference was merged with the Joint Robotics CDT Conference and Agriforwards Annual Conference.

James Kell (Jacobs Robotics Technical Director) was part of the industry panel on Day 2 along with representatives from the government as well as other companies such as ‘Wayve’. James was keen to point out the benefits of the CRADLE approach – bringing several seemingly unconnected industries together in a collaborative environment to open up possibilities to share solutions across sectors.
