August 8, 2021 – August 12, 2021
The 30th IEEE International Conference on Robot & Human – RO-MAN, is a leading forum where state-of-the-art innovative results, the latest developments as well as future perspectives relating to robot and human interactive communication are presented and discussed. The conference covers a wide range of topics related to Robot and Human Interactive Communication, involving theories, methodologies, technologies, empirical and experimental studies.
The RO-MAN 2021 General Chairs and the Steering Committee have announced that this year’s conference will be held virtually from 8-12 August 2021. Following a careful assessment of the uncertainty due to the rebound of the pandemic in many parts around the world and its impact on international travel and people’s safety, it has been inevitable to make this difficult decision, same as last year.
This year PAL Robotics will be one of the official Silver sponsors of the 30th IEEE International Conference on Robot & Human. As one of the leading players in humanoids and service robotics worldwide, PAL Robotics has always been committed to contributing to the community of Robot & Human technologies.
Same as last year, PAL Robotics submitted a new paper on “Social robotic application to support active and healthy ageing” that reviews the user requirements and challenges that are relevant to older adults who prefer to age healthily at home, and how socially assistive robots (SAR) can be used to help them, with a special focus on our ARI robot. The paper, that has been accepted and will be shown during the Conference, has been written by Sara Cooper, Alessandro Di Fava, Francesco Ferro and Luca Marchionni from PAL Robotics, Oscar Villaca from Clínica Humana, Tatiana Silva and Victor Fernandez-Carbajales with Tree Technology and Luis Unzueta and Manex Serras with VICOMTECH.
Last but not least, PAL Robotics will be participating, for the second year in a row, as speakers in the BAILAR workshop that will discuss the learning and behavioral adaptation abilities of robots to enable a more natural and efficient human-robot interaction, especially in the areas of assistive robotics.
