WORKSHOP ABSTRACT

To enable true human‐machine collaboration of service robots, AGVs,
and forklifts working in close proximity in semi‐ and unstructured
environments, it is imperative that certain requisite safety and
reliability constraints be met. Consequently, designing relevant
experiments and developing test methods/metrics that provide
statistically significant results and quantifiable performance data
plays a significant role in achieving this goal, thus enabling
performance evaluation and benchmarking of constituent components of
navigation and world modeling systems. The dynamic nature of
real‐world environments presents additional challenges for
establishing evaluation procedures, including standardized description
of the environment, selection of representative test scenarios, and
the development of suitable benchmarks regarding autonomy and
robustness to changes in the environment.

This full‐day workshop aims to bring together leading experts from
academia, industry, and government who have an interest in robotic
solutions that require safe operation in professional, semi‐ and
unstructured environments. As part of the workshop, the organizers
invite input and feedback from the participants to formulate test
methods and performance metrics that take into account industry
requirements.

INVITED SPEAKERS

Rikard Mäki (Volvo Construction Equipment)
Ola B Pettersson (Atlas Copco)
Emil Hällstig (Optronic)


-----------
SUBMISSIONS

The workshop will provide a forum for peer‐reviewed papers. In
addition, invited speakers from industry and academia will present
their view on key aspects of safe and reliable professional service
robot operation based on their experience in relevant industrial and
research projects.

Authors interested in presenting at the workshop are requested to
submit a one page abstract with title, author names and affiliations
to Martin Magnusson ([hidden email]). Based on a review of the
submitted information, presenters will be selected.
