The 1st International Workshop on
Internet of People, Assistive Robots and Things
Co-located with ACM MobiSys 2018
10 June 2018, Munich, Germany
Rapid advances in sensing, sensor algorithms, miniaturized computing, and improved actuation are expeditiously bringing robots into our daily lives. The near future holds promise of driverless cars, package delivering drones, precision agriculture, co-working robots, and others.
A major paradigm change with these applications is the degree of autonomy of the robot, and the close proximity of their operation in urban environments. This is dramatically different from prior deployments of automation in factories with very structured environments constructed for their operation. This change brings several challenges arising from close proximity of operation with humans, modality of interaction, general awareness, and others.
The 1st International Workshop on Internet of People, Assistive Robots and ThingS (IoPARTS) - co-located with ACM MobiSys 2018 - is interested in bringing out the computer systems challenges that this future paradigm presents.
