Royal Society Exhibition

ORCA Hub will be exhibiting at The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London from Monday 1 July to Sunday 7 July 2019.

"Robots in the Danger Zone"

Our interactive exhibit is currently under development but will show - in miniature - the goals of ORCA and how robots can be used in the offshore industries for guidance, navigation and control within hazardous environments.

The aim of our exhibition will be to provide a hands-on experience for visitors using interactive technology in the form of Cozmo robots and will feature three interactive zones including a small-scale mock-up oil platform and wind turbines.

We will be releasing further details on this page and on Twitter throughout 2019 - #ORCAsummerscience.

Our exhibit, 'Robots in the Danger Zone', will enable visitors to fly small drones in a controlled environment. You can find out more about the work the ORCA Hub team at Imperial College London are doing with drones in the videos below:
