Are you curious about the people behind the robots? The series ‘Real Roboticist’, produced by the 2020 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), shows the people at the forefront of robotics research from a more personal perspective. How did they become roboticists? What made them proud and what challenges did they face? What advice would they give to their younger self? What does a typical day look like? And where do they see the future of robotics? In case you missed it during the On-Demand conference, no worries! IEEE has recently made their original series public, and every Sunday we’ll bring you an interview with a real roboticist for you to get inspired.

This week is the turn of Davide Scaramuzza, Professor and Director of the Robotics and Perception Group at the University of Zürich. In his talk, Davide explains his journey from Electronics Engineering to leading a top robotics vision research group developing a promising technology: event cameras. He’ll also speak about the challenges he faced along the way, and even how he combines the robotics research with another of his passions, magic. Curious about where the magic happens? Davide also takes you around his research lab during the interview. Let the magic happen!

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.
