Shadow Robots has over 20 years experience of Innovate UK and European research projects (FP7 and H2020) as researcher, developer and end-user. Shadow’s broad expertise in robotics allows our engineers to engage in unique projects, helping our clients solve difficult problems through bespoke systems. 

Artificial Intelligence

Shadow Robot recently partnered with OpenAI, a San Francisco-based AI research company, for the second time to prove that agents trained in simulation can effectively perform human-like tasks without real-world replication of training.

Sending touch across the globe for remote teleoperation and telepresence.

Now you can feel and complete tasks at a location without physically being there.

Shadow Robot Company (world’s most advanced dexterous robotic hands), SynTouch (for biomimetic tactile sensors) and HaptX (realistic haptic feedback gloves) along with ANA HOLDINGS (funders and facilitators of the technology) will attend CEATEC to give the fully developed Tactile Telerobot a unique unveiling. The exhibit will be divided into several scenario-based themes, each demonstrating a distinctive way to implement the technology. There will be scenarios for the use of robots in a kitchen, school, fish market, living room, laboratory and skill sharing. See “Supporting Material” for more details. The Tactile Telerobot fits into ANA’s AVATAR vision to help connect humanity across vast distances. Attendees will be able to interact with the live robots in an organic and natural way and experience realistic touch feedback and high dexterity of the system.
