Talking robotics with new podcast episode

The world of robotics is an incredibly fast-paced field, where innovation and creativity power advancements on a continual basis. As we’re focused on driving the progress of our own technology solutions, keeping up with wider developments within the robotics space can be a challenge.

Thankfully, however, there’s the excellent Robot Talk podcast, featuring chats with robotics scientists from across the UK.

So it was met with no small amount of excitement when our CEO, Dr Chang Liu was invited onto the Robot Talk podcast as a guest last month, to talk about his career and the work of Extend Robotics.

“Dr Asher is providing an incredibly important platform leaders in the robotics arena to discuss their work, so I was delighted to be invited onto the Robot Talk podcast.”

Robot Talk

Launched in 2020 and hosted by science communicator and robot enthusiast, Dr Claire Asher, each week Robot Talk explores the exciting world of robotics, artificial intelligence, and autonomous machines.

The podcast gives listeners a chance to find out how cutting-edge research in these fields is influencing the future of every aspect of science, technology, and engineering.

For this latest episode, Dr Liu discussed his early career, the steps that led him to set up Extend Robotics, and his journey with the company since. The conversation also took in some of our tech secrets, including how we’ve tackled depth perception and motion sickness for users.

There was particular mention of our recent work at the Catapult test facility as part of our efforts to spearhead a step change in space, particularly with satellite maintenance.

Reflecting on his interview, Dr Liu added:

“This was a great opportunity for me to reflect on – and appreciate – the immense progress we’ve made at Extend Robotics. The future promises to be very exciting.”
