The Right Trousers @ Bot-Talks

Today the University of Bristol researchers on The Right Trousers project, Dr Tim Helps and Dr Majid Taghavi, attended Bot-Hive’s Bot-Talks event at Watershed to present The Right Trousers to SMEs and the general public. We had a great time!

The Wearable Soft Robotics for Independent Living project is an £2 m ESPRC funded initiative spanning 7 universities. The aim of the project is to develop wearable soft robotic technologies which exhibit sophisticated sensing, actuation and control and can be fabricated into soft robotic clothing which will help disabled and older people move around easily and unaided. The soft robotic clothing will help vulnerable people avoid falls by supporting them whilst walking, give people added bionic strength to move between sitting and standing positions and help people climb stairs.
