Rich Walker

Shadow Robot Company

Rich is the Managing Director of the Shadow Robot Company.  I’ve spent years working in robotics, and now lead the team at Shadow who are developing new robots and new applications for robotics. I’m active in developing and implementing European (FP7 and now Horizon 2020) and TSB/Innovate UK projects and do a little consulting in that area. I’m on the Innovate UK “Robotics and Autonomous Systems” SIG Advisory Board, which hopefully lets me influence the direction the UK takes in robotics in a way that makes sense to SMEs and innovators, as well as a Director of EuRobotics, and sit on various EPSRC and University networks and committees around robotics.
