SMi Group is pleased to announce Military Robotics 2012, which will be held in London on 12 & 13 November 2012.

This must-attend event aims to explore the fascinating world of robotics and its increasing demand to serve military purposes, drawing on case studies of current systems utilised in military operations. Join key industry experts to assess the emerging global market in terms of procurement of Unmanned and Autonomous Vehicles and explore the cutting edge research & development programs paving the way for future integration.

Military Robotics 2012 will go above & beyond in mapping the developments of unmanned & autonomous ground & underwater vehicles, as well as identifying key capability requirements, to be presented by military experts.

Due to the fast-paced development of robotic systems and the increasing demand for their integration into many aspects of society, we have seen a rise in debates and discussion facilitated around the ethical and legal implications. The conference will also seek to encourage discussion on the issues of building a fleet of armed robots and utilising them for fighting an 'Unmanned War' as well as the ethical issues of artificial intelligence.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to understand the future of such technologies and their integration into various domains!
