Track: Control and virtualisation

Date and Time: 14 Mar 2023 08:30-09:50

Organisers: Karol Janik, Daniel Leidner, Eloise Matheson

Main questions to be answered: How can telerobotics technologies be effectively applied to address sector-specific challenges ?,

Additional questions: What are the technical intricacies and innovative solutions that industry leaders and experts have employed to overcome obstacles in implementing telerobotics across diverse sectors?,

Additional questions 2: How can interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge exchange between academia and industry accelerate the development and adoption of telerobotics technologies,

Workshop Description: This workshop organised by the Telerobotics and Teleoperation Topic Group, is dedicated to exploring the transformative potential of telerobotics across diverse industrial sectors. This workshop aims to provide a platform for knowledge exchange, idea generation, and interdisciplinary collaboration. We will have presentations from industry leaders and experts in the space, nuclear, infrastructure and medical & healthcare sectors. These presentations will not only provide a deep dive into sector-specific applications but will also highlight the technical intricacies and solutions employed to address unique challenges. Presentations will be followed up by a panel discussion and Q&A session with focus on fostering cross-sector synergy, sharing industry insights, promoting technology transfer, encouraging interdisciplinary dialogue, and driving innovation.

Intended Outcome: Workshops engaging non-roboticists to understand needs/goals (policy, commercial, technical), Workshop on recent developments in technology or applications, Workshop discussion topics of common interest, success stories, use cases, etc
