3rd UK-RAS Conference

10 October 2020

On 17th April, the University of Lincoln hosted the 3rd EPSRC UK-Robotics and Autonomous Systems (UK-RAS) Network Conference. Due to the current situation of the Covid-19 outbreak, the conference was held virtually. The conference is in particular aimed at PhD students & early-career robotics researchers and offered current insights into work around the topic of “Robots into the Real World”. Besides invited speakers from the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, and the University of Edinburgh, researchers got a chance to present their work in oral and poster presentations. Overall, the conference had 64 submissions, with 15 oral and 41 poster presentations accepted – including some of our research students:

Rankin, J, Justham, L, Goh, Y.M., Morley, J: Task Delegation and Architecture for Autonomous Excavators

Foley, B, Ferreira, P, Zimmer, M: Towards Gamification of the Ramp-up Process for Industry 4.0.

Zimmer, M, Al-Yacoub, A, Ferreira, P, Lohse, N: Towards Human-Chatbot Interaction: A Virtual Assistant for the Ramp-up Process.
