PROGRAMME: ICRA 2014 WORKSHOP: AERIAL ROBOTS PHYSICALLY INTERACTING WITH THE ENVIRONMENT

Updated programme for the Workshop Aerial Robots Physically Interacting with the Environment.This workshop is devoted to the methods, technologies and applications of aerial robots in physical contact with the environment. The workshop will include presentations related to the main scientific and technological topics (see below) including the cooperation of several aerial robots. Thus, new methods and technologies together with simulations and implementations by using quadrotors, and helicopters will be included. Relevant application scenarios will be also analysed. ICRA provides an ideal venue to effectively engage a wide audience of subject matter experts and hence motivates this workshop. The objectives of the workshop are: 1) Present some of the scientific and technological results already obtained in dynamics of articulated aerial robots, control of aerial robots (helicopters and multi-copters) with manipulators, perception and planning in environments relevant for applications. 2) Point out what is needed to solve practical applications 3) Facilitate discussion on technology gaps, research directions and identify collaborations.
