“The latest advances in robotics and their implications for culture and society” is the topic for the latest episode of the BBC’s Horizons. The videos examine the use of robots in factories and manufacturing plants, medical facilities, and several other areas all directly related to ITGS. One of the highlights is a flying ‘quadrocopter’ robot which can fly into buildings and map them out. It is designed to search for people who are missing or trapped after a disaster such as an earthquake.
