Operator Assisted Mobile Robots for Inspection of Harsh Environments

Workshop at the European Robotics Forum 2015, March 13 (14:00 - 15:30)

In the next few years, the deployment of civil robots will extend to increasingly extreme environments in domains including remote inspection and search and rescue. The effective application of these robots demands for new methods in supervised autonomy and perception. In the course of this workshop, speakers will present such methods and highlight new approaches. Extensive discussions will be moderated to collect domain specific requirements and predictions about future developments. These will be summarized and communicated to relevant topic groups (potentially including Aerial Robots, Autonomous Navigation, Civil Robots, Field/Service Robots in Unstructured Environments, Maintenance and Inspection, Perception, and Telerobotics and Teleoperation).
