The Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (LCAS), based out of the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln, has joined the UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems Network (UK-RAS).

Set up in 2015, UK-RAS seeks to allow university research centres across the UK to integrate and co-ordinate, in a research sector that the government has identified as a priority.

Other universities in the network include The University of Oxford, the University of Manchester and Imperial College London.

Director of LCAS, Professor Tom Duckett, said the following regarding the news: "We are very pleased to have joined the UK-RAS Network, which brings together the UK's leading academic research centres for robotics and autonomous systems. We believe the University brings some unique specialisms to the network through our particular expertise, facilities and approach to working with industry. By nature robotics research tends to be collaborative and inter-disciplinary in scope, so the network can only help the UK emerge as a world leader in developing and exploiting these technologies."
