August 29, 2022 – September 2, 2022
The 31th IEEE International Conference on Robot & Human – RO-MAN 2022, 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. Every August, PAL Robotics team is excited to be attending the RO-MAN 2022 Conference, which this year will be held in a hybrid format, meaning people from all over the world will be able to join in virtually or travel to Naples, Italy from August 29 to September 2! This year, the same as last year, we will be attending the event as Silver Sponsors and bringing our team and robots along. We are also happy to announce, that a paper, written by our colleague Antonio Andriella, on “Evaluating the Effect of Theory of Mind on People’s Trust in a Faulty Robot” got accepted and will be presented at the conference. Stay tuned to find out what day and time you can learn more about the paper! At the RO-MAN 2022 Conference you won’t only be able to meet our team of researchers and scientists, who are looking forward to discussing AI, HRI and robotics with you, but also get to see our most popular robots, ARI and TIAGo, in person! ARI is our latest humanoid platform specifically designed for HRI and front-desk activities and is the perfect mix of Service Robotics and Artificial Intelligence in one single platform. TIAGo, our most versatile platform that adapts to your research needs and not the other way around, and it combines perception, navigation, manipulation & Human-Robot Interaction skills out of the box. Let’s meet in RO-MAN 2022 and let’s keep on boosting interactions!
