THE country's biggest robotic laboratory opens in Bristol today.
The centre, a partnership between Bristol University and the University of the West of England, was due to be officially opened by Government minister David Willetts.
The lab at UWE's Frenchay campus is home to a community of 70 academics and businesses who are leading the way in design and construction of robots.
More than £1.65 million has been spent on the new facilities, which include over 300 metres of specialised laboratory space and two specially built flying arenas.

Projects include robots that use whiskers to find their way around, small unmanned aircraft, robots to help care for older people and robots to help reset broken bones.
Mr Willetts said: "Robotics has a whole host of everyday applications, from helping our ageing population to improving manufacturing processes. Bristol Robotics Laboratory will bring together the best expertise from industry and the academic community to spearhead Britain's efforts to be world leading in this fascinating and exciting area of science."
Professor Chris Melhuish, director of the centre added: "We are on the threshold of an exciting new era in robotics in the UK and BRL is already making significant contributions in many areas."
