This is a stand in the SME village, located in Zone C: SME Village. Stand number: C11

The shadow dexterous hand is used in robotics research to give robots the same ability to interact with the world as humans.

The Shadow Robot company is one of the longest-running robotics firms in the UK, and has been developing robots and other unusual technologies since 1987. For the last five years, along with a wide selection of robotics contract engineering, Shadow has specialised in the development of dexterous manipulation for humanoid robotics. This has lead to the creation of the world’s most advanced robot hand, the shadow dexterous hand, currently in version C6.
