Summary of session:

Robots are revolutionizing manufacturing, healthcare, logistics, agriculture, or even home. The rise of robots has created huge demands and opportunities for robotics talent and has stimulated great interests in robotics research from both academia and industries. With the accumulation of practical experience, technology advances, and the widespread applications, robots of the future will be more intelligent, connected, collaborative, and mobile.


The objective of this session is to provide a forum for researchers to discuss and disseminate research work related to emerging technologies that are defining the future of robotics. Original research papers addressing the following four technology areas and their applications are invited:

Robot intelligence: deep learning, 2D/3D vision, autonomous decision-making, learning by demonstration, cloud/edge robotics.

Human-robot collaboration: multi-robot-human cooperation, collaborative AI, haptic technology, safety assurance, cybersecurity for robotics.

Digital twin for Robot: modelling, digital connectivity, IoT integration, AI computing, simulation-based decision making, virtual commissioning.

Autonomous mobile robot: natural navigation, V-SLAM, perception, sensory data fusion, synchronous mobile manipulation, collision detection and avoidance.


Papers with proper consideration for practical applications, e.g., in the form of simulation models, prototypes, and/or with industrial collaboration will be considered favorably for acceptance.
