IROS 2014

Some new results from the NGV Team at the University of Michigan describe different approaches for perception (detecting obstacles on the road) and localizations (figuring out precisely where you are).

Full transcript below.
In this episode, Sabine Hauert speaks with Travis Deyle, about his IROS-nominated work on RFID tags, his blog Hizook, and the career path that brought him from academia, to founding his own start-up, and finally working for Google[x].

In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Peter Corke from Queensland University of Technology, about computer vision – the subject of his plenary talk at IROS 2014 (link to slides below). He begins with a brief history of biological vision before discussing some early and more modern implementations of computer vision. Corke also talks about resources for those interested in learning computer vision, including his book, Robotic Vision & Control, and a massively open online course (MOOC) that he plans to release in 2015. 

Last month at IROS the SV-ROS team Maxed-Out won the Microsoft Kinect Challenge. In this post Mathieu Labbé describes the mapping approach the team used to help them win.

A few weeks ago, Pi Robot and I joined the Silicon Valley ROS Users Group (SV-ROS) to help with the effort (already under way) to prepare for a challenging robot navigation contest held at the end of this year’s IROS Conference in Chicago.

How do I get to MVP? How do I take my existing technology to a different market? The IROS 2014 Industry Forum brought together entrepreneurs, researchers, venture capitalists and funding agencies from across the globe to shed perspective on these questions and engage in open dialogue about some of the pitfalls of commercializing robotics technology. Here are the 10 best quotes from the event.

The 2014 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2014) is on in Chicago, and members of the robotics research community have descended on the Windy City. This year the organizing committee experimented with a new 3-minute presentation format followed by an interactive session. We invited researchers to give their “pitch” in front of our IROS cam … below are just some of the great pitches we came across in the interactive sessions. Watch out for more IROS Cam videos coming soon!

Shame that the missing engineering hero on the cover of IEEE Spectrum’s July issue looks like superMAN , because the IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) lunch at IROS 2014 was a super gathering of high achievers who are making statements about 6% representation looking more like a glass half full, if you harness the potential. Lynne Parker, for example, is the General Chair of ICRA 2015, with a 50 strong all-female organizing committee for the premier robotics research event .
