14th IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots
During the Humanoids 2014 conference in Madrid Spain, PAL Robotics is organizing a half day workshop.
Date: November 18th, 2014, Madrid, Spain
Humanoid robots are one of the most challenging subjects in robotics.
Software architectures and design methodologies have a critical impact on development effort and quality of robot control systems.
On human size biped robots many components must coexist and interact with each other to implement desired skills. Teams of people must work in an organized manner, working incrementally to achieve results.
How to design such systems is an important question of research in order to make progress in robotics and reduce the amount of time spent in software development, integration and maintenance.
There are several methodologies and frameworks that help facing this problem. The aim of this workshop if to bring together the relevant experts in the field that work on a daily basis with humanoid robots in order to share the experiences learned through the years, identify common problems and take a step towards a standard way to solve them.
Each of the invited speakers has their own robotic platform and framework, giving the opportunity for an active discussion of the proposed topic.
- Humanoid software development
- Control architectures
- Development tools
- Best practices, etc.
List of confirmed invited speakers:
Control and Middleware for Human Centered Robots
Depart. of Mechanical Engineering
