ICRA2018 – it’s a wrap!

The International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society’s flagship conference was held for the first time in Australia last week, 21-25 May 2018.

During this time, Brisbane was home to over 3,000 international robotics delegates who gathered for technical communications through presentations and discussions.

CSIRO was a platinum sponsor of the event, with the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group facilitating two workshops at the event, one in Multilegged Robots and another on Autonomous Robot Design, apart from having four papers accepted at the Conference:

In addition, a CSIRO Technical Site Tour with over 50 delegates from ICRA was also hosted at the Group’s Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT) facilities in Brisbane.
