Disability Rights and Robotics

Co-producing futures

How can robotics technology support disability rights?

The 'Disability Rights and Robotics Co-Producing Futures' project has generated research questions regarding disability rights and robotics and has developed the co-production process for future research.

This project brought together a team of 25 co-researchers from the University of the West of England, Fairfield Farm College and Wiltshire Centre of Independent Living. The co-researchers are a diverse group including disabled people, carers, students, and academics from social work, psychology and sociology to robotics. Our research team demonstrates a wealth of experiences as some members had both lived experience of disability, in addition to being involved in teaching, learning and research.
