The Technology Strategy Board (UK) is to invest up to £1m in feasibility studies to accelerate the development of novel Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) concepts towards demonstration and exploitation of the technology across multiple sectors. TSB aims to stimulate new partnerships between the RAS communities involved which have focused on different sectors to date but could collaborate to generate new solutions to known problems within a new industrial RAS sector in the UK.

The UK has world leading strengths in the underlying science and engineering contributing to these systems, and access to the markets that could exploit them.
All projects must be collaborative and led by a SME.  Projects will last up to 12 months and we expect total project sizes to be up to £133k although projects outside this range will be considered.

The Technology Strategy Board is an executive non-departmental public body (NDPB), established by the Government in 2007 and sponsored by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

For more information about the project, please visit the TSB website.
