#DARS16 live coverage and video trailer: From robot swarms to origami modules
The 13th International Symposium on Distributed Autonomous Robotic Systems (DARS) in London this week brings together the very best working in multi-robot systems. The general chair this year is Roderich Gross from Sheffield Robotics.
The three-day conference will include 51 presentations from 17 countries, including 4 keynotes by:
- Nikolaus Correll (University of Colorado Boulder): Material-integrated intelligence for robot autonomy
- Vijay Kumar (University of Pennsylvania): Coordination, cooperation, and collaboration in multi-robot systems
- James AR Marshall (University of Sheffield): Go to the bee and be wise: Swarm engineering inspired by house-hunting honeybees
- Katia Sycara (Carnegie Mellon University): Robust human control of multi-robot swarms
You can find the full program here.
Papers cover a range of topics including flying and underwater bots, swarms, and origami modules that self-assemble. Check the video trailer for an overview of some of the research presented.
