ERF 2015 Workshop on Mobile Manipulation in Manufacturing

13 March, 08:00-10:00, Vienna, Austria

The manufacturing sector is nowadays the largest robot user. It has in-depth knowledge of the advantages and limitations of the traditional robotics systems, and therefore offers application scenarios par excellence to the mobile manipulators research community.

The objective of this workshop is to open a discussion forum that allows experts and potential end-users in mobile manipulation to cross share recent developments, challenges and future research trends with the potential end-users of this technology.

We will have industrial and RTD partners involved in mobile manipulators projects in manufacturing application scenarios such as logistics for the automotive industry (STAMINA), large scale manufacturing operations for shipyards (CARLoS), and assembly in aerospace manufacturing (VALERI). Topics of interest include:
.	Challenges on mobile manipulators for industrial applications,
.	Localization and Navigation, 
.	Arm navigation and path planning, 
.	Human robot interaction and cooperation, 
.	Safety for collaborative robotics 
.	Manipulation and Object recognition and localization.
