July 19 - July 21
The IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots (HUMANOIDS 2021) is the internationally recognized prime event of the humanoid robotics community. Established in 2000 and held annually, the Humanoids Conference is a forum for researchers working in the area of humanoid robots including mechatronics, control, perception, planning, learning, human-robot interaction, biomechanics, artificial intelligence, cognition, and neuroscience. This year the HUMANOIDS conference will be taking place virtually on the 19-21 of July and we are looking forward to taking part in it as Golden Sponsors!
At the HUMANOIDS conference, PAL Robotics will be presenting as invited speakers in the workshop ‘Towards physical-social human-robot interaction’ on Monday 19 July. Our CEO Francesco Ferro will talk about ‘Developments in HRI to advance humanoid robots’ including collaborative projects we take part in, SHAPES and SPRING where our social ARI robot is assisting in healthcare and at home, and CANOPIES where our humanoid TIAGo robot is being adapted for use in vineyards for agrifood. The workshop is organised by Prof Katja Mombaur, Dr Marie Charbonneau, and Dr Francisco Andrade Chavez of the University of Waterloo, Canada.
In addition, we are joining as invited speakers the workshop ‘TALOS status & progress’ on Monday 19 July, with our Robotics Software Engineer, Adria Roig presenting software stack upgrades and progress on whole-body control for humanoid legged robot TALOS, including dynamic motions, TALOS in the NASA Space Robotics Challenge, software updates, and the latest in locomotion. Olivier Stasse of CNRS, and Alexander Werner of University of Waterloo are the workshop hosts.
We will hold a LIVE virtual tour of our legged robots, including the latest members of the PAL Robotics family, Kangaroo jumping robot and SOLO advanced quadruped platform. Our humanoids team will host this session on Wednesday 21 July at 17.15 CEST, make sure you take a look!
