Video Friday: CableRobot Simulator, Under Ice Rover, and Robotic Optical Illusions
Tomorrow, we’re getviting on a very large airplane and taking a very long flight to Germany to cover the 2015 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) in Hamburg. Our schedule so far includes attending 152 handpicked talks over three days, which is of course impossible, but (as we always do) we’re going to do our best anyway. There are also workshops, technical tours, keynotes, plenaries, and forums: you can see everything on the schedule here.
Since we spend all day attending sessions and checking out real robots at the exhibition (did we mention that there’s an exhibit hall, because there’s an exhibit hall), that doesn’t leave a lot of spare time or energy to sit down and, you know, write articles and stuff. We’ll do our best to get you some selected highlights every day, and we’ll definitely be reporting on IROS for the next several weeks.
Oh, and if you’re going to be at IROS, make sure and say hi: I’ll be the exhausted looking guy with an oversized camera trying to see everything at once.
