ICRA 2018 Long-Term Autonomy Workshop talk by Prof. Kelly

Thanks to everyone who attended the ICRA 2018 Workshop on Long-Term Autonomy and Deployment of Intelligent Robots in the Real World; Prof. Kelly gave a talk about developing collaborative robots for long-term service roles (“Designing for Long-Term Autonomy: Experiences with Collaborative Robots”). The panel discussion was great!

Prof. Kelly elevated to IEEE Senior Member

Prof. Kelly has been elevated to the status of Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) – an award given for “significant contributions to the profession.” He began working with the IEEE as an undergraduate volunteer, initially holding the position of Student Branch Secretary.

Paper accepted at RSS 2018!

Work by our own Matt Giamou, in collaboration with Jonathan How’s Aerospace Controls Lab at MIT, will appear at Robotics: Science and Systems 2018 in Pittsburgh! The paper, “Near-Optimal Any-Com Framework for Resource-Adaptive Inter-Robot Loop Closure Detection,” focussed on loop closures under communications constraints. Congratulations Matt!

Welcome 2017 summer students!

We’re happy to welcome new students for summer 2017: Filip Marić has joined us as an exchange student from the University of Zagreb, working on mobile manipulation as part of his MSc project, Yilun Wu from UofT Engineering Science will be conducting some exciting UAV research, and Luke Volpatti, also from Engineering Science, will extend our calibration tools. Looking forward to a great summer!
