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.

How robots and bubbles could soon help clean up underwater litter

Everyone loves to visit the seaside, whether to enjoy the physical benefits of an exhilarating swim or simply to relax on the beach and catch some sun. But these simple life affirming pleasures are easily ruined by the presence of litter, which if persistent can have a serious negative impact on both the local environment and economy. However, help is at hand to ensure the pristine nature of our coastlines.
