Technology Reseller v72 39 EVENTS STEM programme, 1,000 11-16 year-olds from 24 schools will enjoy a specially curated programme of talks and workshops from the Goodwood Education Trust and Future Lab exhibitors. Future Lab Ambassador, the astronaut Tim Peake, said: “I’m very much looking forward to returning to the Festival of Speed. It’s always fantastic to see the next generation of scientists, explorers, engineers and innovators interact with the Future Lab exhibits.” FOS TECH’s interest in new and emerging technologies extends beyond the Future Lab pavilion and onto the racetrack, with the Indy Autonomous Challenge team, a graduate of the 2023 Future Lab pavilion, attempting to set an autonomous racecar world record on the Goodwood Hill. Elsewhere, Electric Avenue will showcase electric and hydrogen-powered cars, enabling visitors to learn more about the benefits of switching to alternative-fuel vehicle and explore a wide range of models. These include the MG Cyberster, which made its world debut at the 2023 Festival of Speed. As part of its celebration of motorsports through the ages, the 2024 Festival of Speed features numerous other attractions including the F1 Pit Lane, where visitors can mix with the drivers and mechanics of six Formula 1 teams, the Forest Rally Stage, Supercar Paddock, Supercar Run, Drivers’ Club, GAS Arena, Cartier Style et Luxe Concours d’Elegance and Bonhams Cars Auction. This year’s Festival of Speed at Goodwood House, West Sussex on July 11-14 will once again feature the FOS TECH Future Lab exhibition of space tech, drones, robots and AI, alongside more than 600 cars and motorcycles from the past, present and future of motorsports. Exhibits on show in the Future Lab presented by Randox pavilion include eVolare, a vertical take-off and landing electric jet; a solar-powered car from Durham University; wall-climbing robots; 3D-printed delivery vehicles; and many more groundbreaking innovations. As part of the Festival of Speed 2024’s The Future Lab line up Exploring the theme of ‘Technology for a Better World’, Future Lab exhibitors are grouped into four categories: Protecting the Planet, Robots to the Rescue, Future of Flight and Our World in Pixels. Protecting the planet n Astroscale: developer of sustainable solutions for on-orbit servicing, satellite life extension and end of life and space junk removal n Durham University Solar Car: the highestranking British team to finish the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. n Levidian Loop: decarbonisation innovators turning methane into graphene for reuse. n The Tyre Collective: a clean-tech start-up capturing tyre pollution. n Wayfinder: open-access, near-time visualisation of satellites and debris in the Earth’s atmosphere through the first app to be built on Privateer’s data engine. Robots to the Rescue n Hausbots: unique wall-climbing robots. n Shadow Robot: the world’s most robust, dexterous robotic hand series. n Sheffield Robotics: bringing together industry and academics from the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University for robotics research. n Helixx: zero carbon, 3D-printed delivery vehicles built in flat pack Mobility Hubs. n Dexory: all-in-one autonomous warehouse solution for gathering real-time inventory data. n Earth Rover: developer of CLAWS, an autonomous weed control and crop data-gathering robot. Future of Flight n Dronamics: the world’s first remotely piloted cargo drone airline, the Dronamics’ Black Swan. n eVolare: Lilium Jet, the world’s first all-electric vertical take-off and landing jet. n unlocking the use of drones at scale for industrial uses. n Hybrid Air Vehicles: the Airlander 10 hybrid helium airship with auxiliary wing and tail surfaces. n Drone City: workshops and education for drone coders, pilots and builders. n Windracers: advanced autonomous logistics drones including the first Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) autonomous drone flight in the UK. Our World in Pixels n Performit Live: remote motion capture system connecting performers with directors and animators, wherever they are, for remote real-time rehearsal and performance. n Miirage: modular hologram system delivering audio visual effects with razor-sharp precision (can be used to bring Performit Live’s actors to life as a real-time modular hologram). n Metaverse VR: immersive digital training delivered by a skilled team of 3D modellers and artists. n Atlantic Productions: the world’s leading factual storytellers on the Apple Vision Pro. n GeoAcoustics: partners in the Seabed 2030 project aiming to map the world’s ocean floor by 2030.
