Are you interested by the individuals behind the robots? The collection ‘Actual Roboticist’, produced by the 2020 IEEE/RSJ Worldwide Convention on Clever Robots and Techniques (IROS), reveals the individuals on the forefront of robotics analysis from a extra private perspective. How did they change into roboticists? What made them proud and what challenges did they face? What recommendation would they provide to their youthful self? What does a typical day appear like? And the place do they see the way forward for robotics? In case you missed it through the On-Demand convention, no worries! IEEE has just lately made their unique collection public, and each Sunday we’ll convey you an interview with an actual roboticist so that you can get impressed.
This week is the flip of Davide Scaramuzza, Professor and Director of the Robotics and Notion Group on the College of Zürich. In his speak, Davide explains his journey from Electronics Engineering to main a high robotics imaginative and prescient analysis group creating a promising know-how: occasion cameras. He’ll additionally converse in regards to the challenges he confronted alongside the way in which, and even how he combines the robotics analysis with one other of his passions, magic. Interested by the place the magic occurs? Davide additionally takes you round his analysis lab through the interview. Let the magic occur!
Daniel Carrillo-Zapata was awared his PhD in swarm robotics on the Bristol Robotics Lab in 2020. He now fosters the tradition of “scientific agitation” to interact in two-way conversations between researchers and society.
