STIQ Ltd (a publisher of free-to-download robotics market reports) organised it's third #3 in-person free robotics networking event on November 16th, 2022 hosted at Shoosmiths inspiring offices in central London.
Nearly 100 people attended the event from around the UK and abroad.
Companies in attendance included well known names, such as Airbus, Arrival, Asda, BT, Covariant, Deepmind, Dyson, Flexqube, Gillespie Manners, Goldman Sachs, Legal & General Investments, maxon, Ocado, Shoosmiths, Softbank Robotics, Tesco, and QinetiQ just to mention a few. In addition there were multiple startups & scaleups, postgraduate students and other professionals.
There were 8 presentations from startups and sponsors:
Ronak Samani from maxon with an insightful presentation on brushless motors used in robots.
Owen Nicholson from SLAMcore talked about their views on robot localisation including SLAM.
Alejandra Acevedo presented their view of the future of farm logistics.
Ivo Tedbury talked about the construction industry and highlighted some of the supply chain problems involved in adding robots to that particular industry. He also presented their modular construction panels

Jack Cornes explained their non-magnetic inspection robot system for concrete/rough surfaces.
Jillian Currie presented their company and their unique drone systems. There was also a display by Animal Dynamics for attendees to view the canopy and the real-size robot/drone body.
Dariusz Mankowski talked about their vision for a connected network of robots alongside their delivery robot.
QMUL (Queen Mary University London)
Lorenzo Jamone of QMUL had the unenviable task of presenting just when the pizzas arrived and everyone started smelling the food. Lorenzo's presentation was very entertaining and he talked about the research topics currently running at QMUL, including some of their work with micro sensors.
