Queen´s Award for Snake-arm robot

The UK company Oliver Crispin Robotics Ltd (OC Robotics), one of the leading commercial manufacturers of snake-arm robots in the world has received a Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category, the highest honour that can be bestowed on a UK company. Snake-arm robots are flexible robotic arms which have many joints so they can "follow their nose" into confined spaces. Snake-arm robots are used in the aerospace sector (automated assembly of aircraft), security (robotics for counter-terrorism), nuclear (decommissioning and asset management), and other inspection and maintenance industries.
