Linda the robot featured on BBC’s The One Show

Specialist robot Linda appeared on The One Show on Monday, 19th May.

Linda, who lives at the University, was in London at the launch of the Longitude Prize 2014 – a challenge with a multi-million pound prize fund to help solve one of the greatest issues of our time.

She is one of six specialist mobile robots involved in the £7.2 million collaborative STRANDS project aimed at creating robots that are able to operate independently and ultimately support security guards or staff in care homes.

Linda will be accompanied by Dr Marc Hanheide from the University of Lincoln’s School of Computer Science, who is leading the research on how the robots gather information about their surroundings.
