Set in Salford, the UK RAS promotional video will showcase the latest in robotics.

The video will focus on people and how robotics can improve and positively change the lives of people.  For this reason the video will not be a direct technical showcase of robotics, but rather a demonstration of the benefits to people that robotics can offer now and in the near future.

The video must showcase how UK Robotics can help overcome a challenge. The challenge outlined is Social Care and Independent Living, but more specifically how robotics can help combat the problems brought about by an aging population and the burden this will put on the NHS and possible negative quality of life if left unaddressed.

1.    - Aging population - Proactively managing people so they don’t end up in hospitals sooner than they need to.

2.    - Aging population – People living longer in disability. This is likely to put a huge strain on Salford Royal Infirmary and the NHS as a whole.

3.    - The idea of - "my health, in my home, in my city".

Salford is a digitally enabled city where healthcare and academic professionals work together with Salford City Council in an integrated and collaborative way for the benefit for the community and for the advancement of technology. 

This film’s theme will showcase how robotics supports Social Care and Independent Living.

Lead by Professor Samia Nefti-Mezani from the University of Salford and involving UKRAS Network partners, this short video set to music will highlights the incredible impact that robotics is having in helping people live independently, the integration between robots and healthcare professionals and the resulting benefits for all involved.

Although it’s early stages, partners are being sort to work on the project and the film will be showcased at the UK RAS event in June.
