IROS 2012

Autumn is IROS-time – the IAS team is looking forward to IROS 2012 in Vilamoura, Portual. Below is an overview of our presentations, we are looking forward to meeting you at the conference!

  • Everything Robots Always Wanted to Know about Housework (But Were Afraid to Ask). Daniel Nyga and Michael Beetz. (MonAT7.3, Monday 11:30-11:45)
  • A Unified Representation for Reasoning about Robot Actions, Processes, and Their Effects on Objects. Moritz Tenorth and Michael Beetz. (MonDT11.3, Monday 16:45-17:00)
  • Improving Robot Manipulation through Fingertip Perception. Alexis Maldonado, Humberto Alvarez Heredia, and Michael Beetz. (TueDT10.1, Tuesday 16:15-16:30)
  • Semantic Object Maps for Robotic Housework - Representation, Acquisition and Use. Dejan Pangercic, Moritz Tenorth, Benjamin Pitzer, and Michael Beetz (WedET5.1, Wednesday, 15:00-15:15)

IAS 2012

The International Conference on Intelligent Autonomous Systems will take place in Jeju Island, Korea from June 26-29.

Michael Beetz will give a plenary talk on the topic of "Robotic Agents Performing Human-Scale Everyday Manipulation Tasks - In the Knowledge Lies the Power". In addition, we have two papers in the session on "Web-Enabled Robotics":

  • Exchange of Action-related Information among Autonomous Robots (Thursday, 10:30-10:50, Room 301)
  • RoboEarth Action Recipe Execution (Thursday, 09:30-09:50, Room 301)

Moritz Tenorth and Michael Beetz win Best Cognitive Robotics Paper Award at ICRA 2012

We are very proud to announce that Moritz Tenorth and Michael Beetz with their co-authors Alexander Perzylo and Reinhard Lafrenz won the Best Cognitive Robotics Paper Award at ICRA 2012 with the paper titled: The RoboEarth language: Representing and Exchanging Knowledge about Actions, Objects, and Environments. Congratulations!

IAS at the Automatica 2012

The IAS team will be involved in two demonstrations at the Automatica trade fair: Our PR2 will prepare popcorn for the visitors at the CoTeSys booth in hall B1, booth 321.

As part of the DLR booth, parts of the team will present first results of the SAPHARI project, namely DLR lightweight arms playing with BRIO wooden toy railways (hall B3, booth 520/521).

We are looking forward to meeting you there!

ICRA 2012

The IAS team is preparing for ICRA 2012 in St. Paul, MN. We will organize a workshop on Semantic Perception and Mapping for Knowledge-enabled Service Robotics and have seven paper presentations. Please find the locations and schedule below.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the conference!
