Georgia will join the IEEE RAS Technical Committee of Mobile Manipulation as a co-chair alongside Nikolaus Correll, Kensuke Harada, Mehmet Dogar, and Roberto Martin-Martin.
Abstract: Inherent morphological characteristics in objects may offer a wide range of plausible grasping orientations that obfuscates the visual learning of robotic grasping. Existing grasp generation approaches are cursed to construct discontinuous grasp maps by aggregating annotations for drastically different orientations per grasping point. Moreover, current methods generate grasp candidates across a single direction inContinue reading “Orientation Attentive Robotic Grasp Synthesis with Augmented Grasp Map Representation”

We are excited to announce this year’s edition of the RSS Pioneers workshop. About RSS Pioneers: RSS Pioneers is an intensive workshop for senior Ph.D. students and postdocs in the robotics community. Held in conjunction with the main Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS) conference, each year the RSS Pioneers brings together a cohort of theContinue reading “General co-chair of RSS Pioneers 2021”
iROSA and IAS welcome two TIAGo++ robots, developed by PAL Robotics. TIAGo++ can now combine a skilled pair of 7-DoF arms to perform coordinated dual-arm actions. The bi-manual robot continues being completely ROS based, fully customizable and expandable with extra sensors and devices, and robust.
Georgia Chalvatzaki, a postdoctoral researcher at the Intelligent Autonomous Systems group (IAS) in the Department of Computer Science at TU Darmstadt, has been accepted into the renowned Emmy Noether Programme (ENP) of the German Research Foundation (DFG). This project was awarded within the ENP Artificial Intelligence call of the DFG – only nine proposals outContinue reading “Robotics expert Georgia Chalvatzaki awarded an AI Grant through Emmy Noether Programme”
