Workshop Title [Workshop 1] AI Guidance and Navigation for Mobile Robots in Crowded Space (Closed Workshop)
Organizers Dr. Dong Yeop Kim, Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI)
Date/Time/Place July 4, 2022 (MON) / 15:20-18:00 / Udo Hall (2F)
Abstracts & Program:
In this session, we will discuss about navigation technology in the urban environment. There are two main theme. First, we have researched about AI navigation technology. ETRI(Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute), SNU(Seoul National University), and NAVER Labs have focused recognition and decision AI for navigation, not only limited in robot systems. Second, we have developed agile mobile robot navigation systems. KETI(Korea Electronics Technology Institute), Korea University, Yonsei University, KAIST(Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology), and HYULIM Robot have been inspired by both model-based approaches and AI-based approaches. We have tested our navigation system and technology in accordance with Industrial Convergence Regulatory Sandbox Demonstration Special Case No. 102 of the Korea Government. The test outputs will be discussed in this session. Note that only invited personnel can join in this session.

Workshop Title [Workshop 2] Advancing Research Through Robot Competition
Organizers Prof. Sridhar Ravi – University of New South Wales, Sydney
Donald Sofge – U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Washington D.C.
Tristan Schuler – U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Washington D.C.
Date/Time/Place July 6, 2022 (WED) / 09:00-18:00 / Ora Hall (8F)
Abstracts & Program:
Advancing Research Through Robot Competition – A reflection from academia, sponsors, and the public focuses on the outcomes of robot competitions. This workshop will focus on all types of robotic competitions and not just those are swarm robotics related. This workshop specifically focuses on transitions between simulation and the real-world as well as working with academia.
Key objectives for this workshop will be to determine:
1. The common technical challenges/assumptions within the robot competitions.
2. The common critical gaps that arise from the simplifications used in the competitions.
3. The common constraints imposed in the competitions (safety, battery life, communication, etc.) and why were they imposed.
4. What we learn from competitions?
5. The major benefits/takeaways?
This workshop will feature handpicked experts in the pertaining fields to give lectures covering these topics. This workshop will also accept paper submissions by researchers on this topic. Authors of the top papers will have a chance to present their work via an oral presentation and/or a poster session. It is currently planned to have four to six invited speakers and up to five top paper presentations. The number of poster presentations will depend on the quality of submitted documents.
