International Conference on Advanced Humanoid Robotics Research (ICAHRR)

The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers from all areas of humanoid robotics to explore new frontiers for humanoid robots, a very active and important research area within robotics. To date most work in this area has focused on the generation of basic walking gaits for flat terrains, but recent advances have led to novel research opportunities and directions. While walking is obviously a core competency for a humanoid robots, and a skill on which more challenging behaviours are based, it is still a simple task when compared to the full range of motions on which more challenging behaviours are based, it is still a simple task when compared to the full range of motions a human can easily generate and control. To develop humanoid robots that can have a significant impact on our society, such as robotic nurses or firemen, a humanoid robot must be able to actively balance on uneven surfaces (e.g., move through grass as well as gravel roads), plan complex motions (e.g., pick up dirty laundry from underneath the bed), and interact with other robots or humans (e.g., move furniture). The conference provides researchers with an opportunity to present active developments in these and related areas, and to develop directions for future research.
