Coming Up At ICRA 2010: Tuesday Technical Program

Eitan Marder-Eppstein will present The Office Marathon: Robust Navigation in an Indoor Office Environment at the Autonomous Nagivation session. Eitan will discuss our second Milestone, during which the PR2 navigated autonomously for 26.2 miles in a real office environment. Eitan will present the methods required to achieve this level of robustness, including an efficient Voxel-based 3D mapping algorithm that explicitly models unknown space.  Check below for the paper's video results.

       This talk will take place on Tuesday, May 4 (from 9:15 to 9:30 am) in the Egan Center Street Level, Room Cook Hall.

Kurt Konolige will present Projected Texture Stereo at the Range Sensing session on Tuesday morning. He will discuss the development of a practical stereo projector system with excellent depth precision and resolution, especially in the range out to 1.5m.

       This talk will take place on Tuesday, May 4 (from 9:45 to 10:00 am) in the Egan Center Lower Level, Room 1.

Melonee Wise will present Autonomous Door Opening and Plugging in with a Personal Robot at the Personal and Service Robots session.  This paper also discusses our second Milestone, focusing on opening doors and plugging into wall outlets.

       This talk will take place on Tuesday, May 4 (from 2:50 to 3:05 pm) in the Egan Center Lower Level, Room 1.

The authors will present Planning for Autonomous Door Opening with a Mobile Manipulator at the Mobile Manipulation session.  They will discuss the use of graph search-based motion planning to handle the wide variety of conditions under which doors need to be opened.

       This talk will take place on Tuesday, May 4 (from 6:45 to 7:00 pm) in the Egan Center Lower Level, Room 13/14.
