See you soon at IROS 2021!

The Intelligent Robotics group will attend IROS 2021 with two accepted papers and PhD. Fares Abu-Dakka as main organizer of the workshop “Variable Impedance Robotics Skills: Challenges and Opportunities”.

Workshop on “Variable Impedance Robotics Skills: Challenges and Opportunities” (website)(schedule)(zoom link)

Organizers: Fares J. Abu-Dakka, Matteo Saveriano, Jeannette Bohg, Matej Hoffman

“The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts as a means to examine current research on how to successfully transfer compliant motions from humans to robots, allowing for safe and energy-efficient interactions. In this manner, we enable robots to perform in many scenarios, not only the ones that need physical interaction with the human but also in industrial settings. In addition, this workshop targets the sharing of experiences and achievements of bringing robots to human daily life from scientists and researchers from both control theory and machine learning fields. Last but not least, the workshop aims to discuss the state-of-the-art of variable impedance robot skills, the advantages that can be achieved from robot learning methods, and the future research directions.”
