2nd Advanced Marine Robotics TC Workshop
For the development of the human society, there are extensive opportunities for robots to work long-term in the vast marine environment, e.g. for observation, transportation, environment protection, etc. Significant challenges exist as well, e.g. in autonomy, energy, communication, robustness, and so forth.
To advocate the research for long-term marine robotics, this workshop will gather scholars in areas of robot design, perception, control, energy, planning, human-robot interaction, etc., to share their insights on how to enable marine robots to arrive at remote locations, explore for a longer time, become more autonomous, overcome faults, perceive and so forth. Young researchers will also present their latest discoveries in workshop papers. In the final discussions, speakers and audiences will interact and brainstorm how to enable marine robots for long-term functionalities.
This workshop will provide a platform for marine robotic researchers at various career stages to exchange ideas so as to enable robots for long-term marine applications. It will also elaborate on opportunities and challenges in marine robotics so as to inspire and attract researchers in other robotic fields to join the collaboration.
Time: 9:00-16:50, October 1, 2023
