An International workshop on field and assistive robotics will take place on Oct 17-18, 2014 at FAST-NU Faculty of Computer Science in the cultural heart of Pakistan, Lahore. The theme of the workshop is to introduce new and exciting areas of research in field and off-road robotics. It is 7th in a series of similar events regularly being held since 2011.
Following the concept from previous events, the workshop will cover a diverse range of related topics, such as motion planning algorithms; biomimetic robotic mechanisms; agricultural robotics; robotics in society; and other issues associated with the development of autonomous robots. The workshop will feature papers, research presentations and robot demos by experts in field robotics from universities and industry in Germany and Pakistan. The workshop will also provide an opportunity for robotics researchers in Pakistan to exchange ideas and develop new collaborations in this emerging area.
It is 7th in a series of similar events, initiated with the 1st Pak-German Workshop on Field Robotics held in October 2011 in Lahore, followed by the 2nd German-Pakistani Workshop on Field and Assistive Robotics held in June 2012 in Dagstuhl, Germany. The 3rd Workshop on Field and Assistive Robotics was held in November 2012 in Lahore, followed by the 4th Workshop on Field and Assistive Robotics held in June 2013 in Dagstuhl, Germany. The 5th Workshop on Field and Assistive Robots was held in November 2013 at LUMS and the 6th Workshop will be held in June in Germany.
