Together with the Cognitive Robotics lab (CoR) and the AI & Vision group, PAL went to visit Rob Buckingham at the Joint European Torus (JET), a plasma physics experiment that will pave the way towards fusion energy. Dr Buckingham is Director at UK Atomic Energy Authority and Head of RACE (Remote Applications in Challenging Environments). The groups met to investigate potential collaboration in performance augmentation (for, e.g., building of ITER), robotics applications, and computer vision. This included looking into the Smart Oxford initiative and work around self-driving cars in the housing development site currently in planning stage in Culham.
