Since 2005 we have been developing humanoid robots for teaching, research and international competition in both RoboCup football and FIRA athletics events. In recent years we have gained cups at FIRA competitions, and broken world records for humanoid robot sprint and marathon. We now have over 20 Plymouth Humanoids that are used routinely for teaching, final year student projects and competitions.
As a robotics student you will contribute to the robot football project running in the School. They are designed and built by students and staff here, so you will get involved in a project to extend the features of the robots: electronics, mechanics and software. You could possibly be in the engineering team that travel and compete all over the world.

The student-led Robotics Society meets weekly. The Society is a hands-on group where students get to build robots, visit robotics companies and participate in student outreach events to schools and the general public.
