What is a Robotics Lab Consultation?

Consultations provide one-on-one technical advice to help you use the robots and other equipment in the Robotics Lab. These sessions may be used to get assistance setting up your project, getting past a difficult part of your project, help designing a new tool or help programming the robot.

Why book a Robotics Lab Consultation?
