Maths In Action: Robots

Robots are everywhere! Not only in science fiction films and novels, but now more and more in real life: in industry, assembling car parts and moving heavy things around, in our homes, helping to clean the floor and in many research laboratories worldwide where the possible applications of tomorrow are studied.

We’re delighted to welcome Dr Lorenzo Jamone, lecturer in robotics at the Queen Mary University of London, to Maths in Action on 7th March 2019. Lorenzo will demonstrate different kinds of robots and show how mathematical equations are used to describe their movements…
