Tharsus - Headline Sponsor

A product-partner for the emerging and increasing numbers of product owners looking to solve the automation challenges set by industry 4.0.  

We support the creation of Advanced Machines and Robots (AMRs) that have the potential to not only transform their organisation and the way they operate, but to disrupt and revolutionise their entire sector. 

Tharsus is both design service provider and manufacturers. We are partners to product-owners, aligning and orchestrating the complete life cycle alongside our customers and supply chain. We are world class manufacturers building and delivering exceptional quality AMRs at scale.

Long term, mutually beneficial partnerships with our customers are the focus of our relationships. Tharsus navigates and guides customers through every stage of the product development journey, from agreeing the commercial concept for their AMR, through feasibility research, design, testing, prototyping and onto volume manufacture.

​The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS)

The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS) is a not-for-profit specialist in digital engineering capability. As a trusted and neutral provider, our vision is to be the recognised, independent, digital test bed for the design of high value engineering products and processes. 


Sundance specialise in design, manufacturing, and testing of electronics modules based on a leading-edge multiprocessing technology. The advances in silicon technology have come to a level where more integration does not result in better performance per CPU, so the requirement for multiprocessing in any Image/Vision application/appliance is now the only option for future portable and low-cost systems. Sundance has in-house manufacturing equipment for electronics board and full test facilities. We run an ISO9001 Quality System to monitor the process, held since 1999.

University of Liverpool

The University of Liverpool is involved in a range of AI and autonomous robotics activities, in simulated, virtual and embodied forms, applied to domestic, industrial and first-response scenarios and controlled through varying degrees of human interaction and autonomy, designed and demonstrated in our state-of-the-art robotics laboratories.


Robosynthesis offers a flexible, robust and cost effective modular robotic delivery platform. Our patented universal connector means robots can not only be easily re-configured but also maintained by non-specialist personnel as damaged modules are simply replaced. A growing portfolio of sensors and tools can be deployed on our platform.


The Robotics and Artificial Intelligence for Nuclear (RAIN) Hub is a joint research programme that combines academic expertise with industry experience. Using robotic systems will fundamentally improve productivity and efficiency across the nuclear industry. By working in partnership with industry we are accelerating the rate of technological development.

Pilz Automation Technology

There are no safe robots, there are only safe robot applications. Pilz Automation Technology– a leading supplier of machinery safety products, consultancy, engineering and training – has experience in a variety of industries in helping those designing and implementing robot and HRC cells to make the application safe from the outset.


The Offshore Robotics for the Certification of Assets (ORCA) Hub is a research hub developing Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems for the offshore sector. It brings together five world-class universities - Heriot-Watt University, the University of Edinburgh, Imperial College London, the University of Oxford and the University of Liverpool - and over thirty industry partners, who together will revolutionise Asset Integrity Management for cheaper, safer and more efficient production.
