The Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (L-CAS) at the University of Lincoln present the Lincoln Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (LIROS).
Modelled on the larger, International Conference on Intelligent Robotics and Systems (IROS) being held by IEEE later in the year, the event will take place via Microsoft Teams on Friday 9th October 2020 and be incorporated in the AgriFoRwArdS CDT and MSc Robotics and Autonomous Systems welcome week activities.
The conference will begin at 9:15am with a short introduction by AgriFoRwArdS and L-CAS Director, Professor Tom Duckett. There will then be three one-hour sessions throughout the morning, two of which feature presentations from experienced researchers from within the University of Lincoln, on a wide variety of topics from the robotics and autonomous systems sector;
- Dr Amir Ghalamzan – Estimating An Object’s Inertial Parameters By Robotic Pushing: A Data-Driven Approach
- Dr Riccardo Polvara – Next-Best-Sense A Multi-criteria robotic exploration strategy for RFID tags discovery
- Dr Sariah Mghames – Interactive Movement Primitives Planning to Push Occluding Pieces for Fruit Picking
- Dr Gautham Das – Incorporating Spatial Constraints into a Bayesian Tracking Framework for Improved Localisation in Agricultural Environments
- Laurence Roberts-Elliot – Towards Safer Robot Motion Using a Qualitative Motion Model to Classify Human-Robot Spatial Interaction
- Sergio Molina-Mellado – Natural Criteria for Comparison of Pedestrian Flow Forecasting Models
- Adrian Salazar Gomez – Learning Density Map Regression for Counting in Agricultural Environments
- Hector Montes – Real-Time Detection of Broccoli Crops in 3D Point Clouds for Autonomous Robotic Harvesting
The third session involves talks from our very own AgriFoRwArdS CDT students, from Cohort 1, who will each present their MSc thesis papers.
- Karoline Heiwolt – Semantic Segmentation of Plant Leaves from 3D Point Clouds using Deep Learning
- Willow Mandil – Investigation into Harvesting Soft Fruit Clusters
- Roopika Ravikanna – Task Allocation using Manipulative Dynamic Auctioneering for Multi Robot Systems
- Grzegorz Sochacki – Residual Physics for Grasp Failure Prediction
