Robotics and Autonomous Systems Special Interest Group Report: Innovate UK - Technology Strategy Board
This landscape collates the output from a series of workshops designed to explore the impact on the UK of advances in Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS). In overviewing the resulting landscape it is clear that the RAS opportunity, as perceived by the UK community, is extensive and rich and that the UK has the potential to create a strong RAS market.
It is also clear that robotics and autonomous systems will impact on each UK market sector and that the total size of this impact will be significantly greater than the size of the RAS sector itself. Across these sectors strong cross cutting themes exist that can be used to drive synergies to build technical capability and market opportunity.
Within those sectors that will benefit the most from robotics and autonomous systems technology the potential for disruptive innovation and the need to respond to change through the development of new business models is now obvious.
Robotics and autonomous systems do not work in isolation. They will require testing, regulation, standards, innovation, investment and skills together with technical progress and strong collaborative partnerships in order to fully realise the opportunity.
The resulting Landscape carries an essential message; that the UK has a unique opportunity
to engage with robotics and autonomous systems, to exploit existing expertise within the UK and explore its potential, but that other nations are similarly engaged and the UK must now be bold and invest to win.
