Workshop (Live @ IROS)
September 27th, 2021
Starting 27th of September, IROS 2021
In the 4th workshop we want to focus on the open questions on safety-related applications involving proximity and tactile systems and sim-to-real learning, respectively. We have therefore put together a program of speakers with expertise in these areas. Our speakers from industry are able to provide first-hand accounts of the procedures for certifying and deploying proximity and tactile perception technologies on real robotic systems. They will also provide valuable insights about the challenges found in this domain in general. Our speakers from research provide expertise in cutting edge proximity and tactile perception technology and their applications. This includes approaches for sensor simulation and HRI using these sensors. As a result, the workshop continues to bridge between research and industry as well as between the communities of proximity and tactile perception. Once again, we will feature an extensive demo -session that will anchor these concepts to concrete hardware already available today.
As in the previous editions, we will feature a Panel Discussion for an organized exchange between the workshop participants and an extensive Demo Session that will relate these ideas to concrete hardware already available today. In addition, we provide a platform for PhD students to present their work in the field to a broader audience.
The goals of the workshop can be summarized as follows:
