Covid-19 related research and technologies free to access in IEEE Xplore®

RAS - Fri, 04/03/2020 - 17:28

IEEE realizes that many are directly or indirectly engaged in the fight against COVID-19 and its effects on global health and safety, research, infrastructure, communications, and more. IEEE has identified articles from the IEEE Xplore digital library that may help researchers understand and manage different aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic and technologies that can be leveraged to combat it.

All content in this collection is now free to access, with additional rights for all types of reuse, including full text and data mining, and analysis.

We are continually monitoring the developments and will update the IEEE Xplore https://ieeexplore.ieee.org content periodically.

Thank you for your support of our shared mission to advance technology for humanity.

Stay Connected to IEEE Xplore When Working Remotely

RAS - Fri, 04/03/2020 - 17:25

If your organization has an institutional subscription to IEEE Xplore(R) and you need to work remotely due to school and workplace closures, you can still access IEEE Xplore and continue your work and research while offsite. Try these tips for remote access or contact IEEE for help. IEEE is here to support you, making certain that your IEEE subscription continues to be accessible to all users so they can continue to work regardless of location.

RA-L Special Issue CFP: Long-Term Human Motion Prediction

RAS - Mon, 03/30/2020 - 18:03
Motivation

Anticipation is a key ability for advanced autonomous systems, especially if they operate in densely crowded environments and alongside humans. Examples of tasks benefiting from predictive human motion models include robot task and motion planning, automated driving, physical human-robot collaboration, intelligent video surveillance. Foreseeing how a scene involving multiple agents evolves over time and incorporating predictions in a proactive manner allows for novel ways of planning, active perception, model predictive control, or human- robot interaction. The growth of community interest to the area in recent years is evident, in particular from the publication trends in regular paper sessions of the recent robotics conferences (ICRA, IROS, RSS and others). Furthermore, the area is recognized as a major component/research direction by several big players in the automotive industry.

The proposal of this Special Issue is motivated by the success of the first workshop on “Long-term Human Motion Prediction”, which took place at ICRA 2019 in Montreal, see https://motionpredictionicra2019.github.io/. The event has received a high number of attendees (more than 100), and the audience, including renowned experts in motion prediction, has shared their positive feedback to the quality of the talks and the submitted extended abstracts. 

The special issue aims to collect the several contributions presented during the workshop and to further welcome possible submissions from the interested researchers by launching a call-for-papers.

RAS Members provide IEEE webinar on Flexible Electronic Skin

RAS - Wed, 03/18/2020 - 21:24

We are happy to announce that IEEE Fellow and RAS Members Ravinder Dahiya and Gordon Cheng, will join their colleagues in a discussion about flexible electronic skin.

This webinar will provide an overview of various sub-topics of electronic skin discussed in the October 2019 Proceedings of the IEEE special issue, "Flexible Electronic Skin: From Humanoids to Humans." University of Glasgow’s Professor Ravinder Dahiya will open the webinar with an overview of electronics skin in robotics and as the "second skin" in wearable and health monitoring applications. University of Cambridge’s Professor Arokia Nathan will then discuss the flexible Ultralow Power Sensor Interfaces for eSkin. This will be followed by Technical University of Munich’s Professor Gordon Cheng’s discussion about the holistic engineering approach for artificial skin for robots and an example of a multi-modal skin cell showing multiple humanlike sensing modalities. The last discussion will by Nanyang Technological University’s Professor Joseph Chang who will present the co-design between the different chains of flexible electronics supply chain to derive practical flexible electronics and sensors for applications where the substrate is expected to bend. The presentations will be followed by Q&A with the panelists.
