IROS 2023 in Detroit: MIRMI Represented with 38 Papers and five Workshops

Community, Research, EVENTS | | AI.FACTORY Bavaria

MIRMI researchers’ contributions to “The Next Generation of Robotics”, the theme of IROS 2023, are broad. At this year's Robotics Forum, 18 MIRMI Principal Investigators and their teams are organizing five workshops and presenting 38 research papers. A comprehensive list of these papers and workshops is available here.

Workshops will happen on the 1st and 5th of October. Their topics range from formal methods of robotics design and control, Multi-Agent Dynamic Games, and machine learning for object grasping to concrete robotics and AI solutions for health and well-being, and the factory of the future.

IROS papers reflect the interdisciplinary work undertaken by MIRMI PIs. These papers include “The ILIAD Safety Stack: Human-Aware, Infrastructure-Free Navigation of Industrial Mobile Robots (I)” by Prof. Achim Lilienthal, Prof. Haddadin and team, and “Determination of the Characteristics of Gears of Robot-Like Systems by Analytical Description of Their Structure” by Prof. Birgit Vogel-Heuser, Prof. Markus Zimmermann, and Prof. Karsten Stahl, and team. Additionally, MIRMI members are joining workshops co-organized by their colleagues. Prof. Angela Schoellig will deliver a presentation as part of the workshop on the design and control of robotic systems, while Prof. Alin Albu-Schaeffer will present in the Geriatronics AI workshop.

This is the list of workshops and papers contributed by MIRMI – TUM researchers.
