Published on 14-07-2021
We are proud to announce that Tharsus acted as consultants on the launch of Connect-R – a world-first modular robot specifically designed to build emergency structures in the planet’s most hazardous environments and remove humans from harm. Providing engineering and development support, Tharsus partnered with a consortium of leading UK businesses and academics led by robotics company Barrnon to develop Connect-R. The project is a major breakthrough in UK engineering and robotics and received £6m in funding, the second largest investment ever made by Innovate UK.
