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.

Papers featured in the video trailer include:

  • Robust Coordinated Aerial Deployments for Theatrical Applications Given Online User Interaction via Behavior Composition
    Ellen Cappo, Arjav Desai, Nathan Michael
  • Programmable Self-Disassembly for Shape Formation in Large-Scale Robot Collectives
    Melvin Gauci, Radhika Nagpal, Michael Rubenstein
  • Geometrical study of a quasi-spherical module for building programmable matter
    Benoît Piranda, Julien Bourgeois
  • Vertex: A New Distributed Underwater Robotic Platform for Environmental Monitoring
    Felix Schill, Alexander Bahr, Alcherio Martinoli
  • Distributed Camouflage for Swarm Robotics and Smart Materials
    Yang Li, John Klingner, Nikolaus Correll
  • OuijaBots: Omnidirectional Robots for Cooperative Object Transport with Rotation Control using No Communication
    Zijian Wang, Guang Yang, Xuanshuo Su, Mac Schwager
  • Effects of Spatiality on Value-Sensitive Decisions by Robot Swarms
    Andreagiovanni Reina, Thomas Bose, Vito Trianni, James Marshall
  • A Comparative Study of Collision Avoidance Algorithms for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles: Performance and Robustness to Noise
    Steven Roelofsen, Denis Gillet, Alcherio Martinoli

And here are the live tweets!

Sabine from Robohub will be attending – so get in touch.
