Carnegie Mellon is well-known for its robotics program and contributions to the industry. The Field Robotics Center is celebrating its 25th anniversary this weekend with a special symposium on how the field robotics industry has developed and what the latest and greatest is today. The live webcast of the speakers is here, and hopefully the video will be archived (I know this is late notice; sorry!).
Speakers include some big names like Dave Lavery (NASA), Dana Yoerger (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute), Hugh Durrant-Whyte (Australia's best-known robotics researcher), Sebastian Thrun (Stanford), and Dave Akin (University of Maryland Space Systems Laboratory).
