Y13 Electronics visit to Northrop Grumman
Year 13 students currently studying robotics as part of their A Level Electronics course recently visited the Northrop Grumman facility in Coventry where military bomb disposal robots are assembled.
On the 4th of December 2014 the Year 13 Electronics Class went on a trip to the Northrop Grumman Factory in Coventry for a student briefing for the upcoming Vex Robotics competition. During the visit we were given the opportunity to inspect and drive several military bomb disposal robots, this was to give us an insight into modern developments in the industry and how to apply them to our own robot. There were also several talks by industry experts regarding the capabilities and uses of the robots and how they relate to their operation roles.
