Title: Human-Robot Interaction in Unstructured and Dynamic Environments
Organizers: Dr. Dandan Zhang et al
Time: 12:30pm – 3:00pm, 25th March
Tactile Robotics Group at UoB (PIs, Postdoc Researchers, PhDs, MScs, Interns)
Teleoperation Group at UWE (PIs, Postdoc Researchers, PhDs, MScs, Interns)
Data Science Group/AI Group/VI Group at UoB (PIs, PhDs, Interns)
This workshop aims to put the ‘Human-Robot Interaction in Unstructured and Dynamic Environment’ under the spotlight by investigating the current trends and providing guidance towards possible future directions in the field. This event will also provide opportunities for PhD students, early-career researchers to practice their presentation and communication skills, which may benefit their social networking. Moreover, it would be great for PIs who are interested in this research topic to discuss potential collaborations, joint-grant proposals.
In recent decades, there has been much advancement in the development of human-robot interaction (HRI) techniques for various applications. A large body of work in the field of HRI look at how humans and robots may better collaborate which span a wide range of research areas, including industrial robots, surgical robots, assistive robots etc.
We are looking forward to discussing the current and future research direction of human-robot interaction and addressing the challenges with i) uncertainties that alter the environment or ii) dynamic events that influence the robotic perception of the environment.
