Emergency services are evacuating the population.

You and your emergency technology special unit are the last hope to combat the pollution.

Will you be able to do it before the city is devastated?

“Super fun escape room with robots!”

“The experience was both fun and educational!

I know how swarm robotics works now! (In principle, at least)”

“Seeing videos from the real research project was really interesting! :)”

“You should take it to the road!”



Swarm Escape! is a swarm robotics escape room created by researchers from the Hauert Lab at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory. With its unique set of robotics puzzles specially designed at the lab, it explores citizens’ attitudes towards swarm robotics and its future applications.
