Stefano Carpin is co-organizing a workshop on “Present and Future of Agricultural Robotics and Technologies” at the 2023 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) on October 5th, with Cherie Kagan and Dave Cappelleri also invited to present.
This workshop aims to highlight and in turn, help push forward the co-design of actuation and perception efforts for future agricultural robotics. Its main objective is to bring together researchers that focus on robotics and sensor technologies, and who are situated both within academia and industry. Doing so will create stronger links between both ends. Academic researchers will have the opportunity to learn more about specific technologies that are already field-ready while industry partners will gather more detailed information about some key current challenges holding back agricultural robotics research that may not be possible to resolve in a scalable manner within the limits of academic research.
