The International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2019)

ICRA2019

Icra 2019The flagship conference of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, ICRA will bring together the world’s top researchers and most important companies to share ideas and advances in our field.  Many of the most important developments in robotics and automation have historically been first exposed at ICRA, and 2019 will take this trend one step further. As the practical and socio-economic impact of our field continues to expand, the role of industry-centered activities has grown and will be a critical aspect of the meeting.

The 44th Annual Conference of the IEEE – IECON 2018

IECON is the flagship annual conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES), focusing on industrial and manufacturing theory and applications of controls, communications, instrumentation, electronics, and computational intelligence.

This year’s IECON is brings a selection of over 1,000 papers, a record-breaking number of papers and attendees of all IECON conferences held in U.S. Papers were topically accepted through 15 technical tracks and 60 special sessions.

A plethora of activities include keynotes, tutorials, panels, and number of one or several day activities.

 

Riccardo Muradore from the Deptartment of Computer Science of the University of Verona (Italy) presented the Paper “An energy saving approach to active object recognition and localization” during the session: SS01 – Oral Session: Machine Vision, Control, And Navigation

Authors: Andrea Roberti, Riccardo Muradore, Paolo Fiorini, Marco Cristani, Francesco Setti

Diana Trojaniello

Head of bioengineering Research, Center for advanced technology in health and wellbeing

Eng. D. Trojaniello is presenting new perspectives in robotic surgery: the SARAS project.

 

SARAS goal is to develop the next-generation of surgical robotic systems that will allow a single surgeon to execute Robotic Minimally Invasive Surgery without the need of an expert assistant surgeon.

The robot will be called solo-surgery system and will consist of a pair of cooperating and autonomous robotic arms holding surgical instruments. The SARAS system will entirely take over the role of the assistant surgeon.
