Present CFP : 2009


The Second International Conference on Robot Communication and Coordination targets the convergence of robotics and communications, acting as a common forum for the two communities. The event will promote cross-pollination of these two areas, adding to our understanding of the interaction between these two exciting computer science research areas.

Robotics is an interdisciplinary field, having benefited greatly from interactions with mechanics, control theory, and electronics. Lately, with the unprecedented growth of wireless communication technologies, the growing attention devoted to sensor networks and ad-hoc networks, and the emergence of commodity robotics platforms, networked robotics represents an exciting new research direction.

Networked robotics offers a framework for coordination of complex mobile systems, thus providing the natural common ground for convergence of information processing, communication theory and control theory. It poses significant challenges, requiring the integration of communication theory, software engineering, distributed sensing and control into a common framework. Furthermore, robots are unique in that their motion and tasking control systems are co-located with the communications mechanisms. This allows the co-exploitation of individual subsystems to provide completely new kinds of networked or distributed autonomy.

Thematic Areas

ROBOCOMM is a leading-edge conference where prominent researchers with different backgrounds can exchange ideas for a common framework that will enable new applications based on large scale networks of mobile or modular robots. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Robotic interactions with sensors
* Communication protocols for tele-operatated and tele-reflexive robots
* Intra-sensor communications within individual robots
* Communication protocols for flocks and swarms of networked robots
* Distributed coordination of modular robots or mobile robots
* Situated and embodied communication
* Biologically inspired or biomimetic robot communication
* Exploiting the interactions betweeen communications and autonomy
* Localization and tracking using robotic communications
* Industrial applications of networked robotics
* Real-time software for mobile robots or modular robots
* Wired networking for robots
* Advanced communication systems for single tele-operated robots

ROBOCOMM will encompass the above mentioned aspects and will encourage the largest possible involvement of industrial partners who are involved in networked robotics and controls. This will provide a dialog between the academic and the industrial communities that will promote the growth of networked robotics.
