This project will promote development of Engineered Arts’ humanoid robot products for introduction to alternative markets, thereby protecting four and creating five high-skilled jobs.
Engineered Arts Ltd proposes to expand the potential market of its advanced humanoid robot products by increasing their versatility and the scope of their applicability. This will be done via two parallel paths. Firstly, through expanding the academic market for the existing product, RoboThespian, by developing it for use as a teaching and research platform. Secondly, through developing the new SociBot platform and moving it into full-scale production.
This proposed expansion will mean that Engineered Arts Ltd will recruit five additional employees. Namely, one robotics researcher/developer, two software developers, one creative content producer and one mechanical engineer.
