Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (L-CAS) held the University of Lincoln’s 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. This event took place via Microsoft Teams on Friday 9th October 2020 and was incorporated in the AgriFoRwArdS CDT’s welcome week activities.
There were three sessions throughout the morning, videos of the sessions will become available shortly.
Session 1: Core Technologies
- Dr Amir Ghalamzan – Estimating An Objects 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
Session 2: Humans and Crops
- Lawrence 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
Session 3: AgriFoRwArdS CDT Masters Projects
- Karoline Heiwolt- Deep 3D Semantic Segmentation of Plant Leaves
- Willow Mandil – Model Predictive Control for Soft Fruit Cluster Harvesting
- Roopika Ravikanna – Task Allocation with Manipulative Dynamic Auctioneering for Multi Robot Systems
- Grzegorz Sochacki – Grasp Stability Prediction with Residual Physics
Everyone agreed the conference was a brilliant success, all the speakers were engaging and presented relevant and interesting research.
