7th Workshop on the Architecture of Smart Cameras


7th Workshop on the Architecture of Smart Cameras


The purpose of this workshop is to provide participants with an informal setting for discussing innovative work (in progress) or ideas on academic and technical directions from machine vision on silicon to smart camera. Participants range from experts to students.

Intended outcomes of WASC should be:

- Getting to know well the people in your field

- Relevant input to your work by the sparring partners

- Viewing and understanding interesting work by others.

- More confidence in your own work

- Generating options for European (and global) collaboration and exchanges

- Setting up joint projects or joint approaches

- An opportunity to publish in a well-respected journal

- Advances for the community and the level of knowledge around smart cameras

Welcome to CLAWAR 2017 | 20th International Conference on Climbing and Walking Robots and Support Technologies for Mobile Machines

The 20th International Conference on Climbing and Walking Robots and Support Technologies for Mobile Machines (CLAWAR 2017), will be held within the premises of the School of Engineering of the Porto Polytechnic, Portugal, during 11 – 13 September 2017, continuing a series of successful events all over the world. CLAWAR 2017 will feature technical and social programs. The technical program will comprise plenary, regular and special/invited sessions. All articles submitted for inclusion in the conference will be peer reviewed before acceptance. It is envisaged that all accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, to be published by World Scientific Publishing Company, as well as on CD/flash drive, subject to registration of at least one author for presenting the work. A selection of presented papers will also be recommended for possible publication in reputable international journals.

IEEE – Robotics & Automation Society Award - Energy harvesting systems for low energy mobile robots

Goals and Audience:

- Development of a low cost energy harvesting systems for low energy consumption mobile robot platforms, in which several energy harvesting solutions can be tested. One of the main goals of this proposal is to introduce robotics students to energy harvesting and energy management techniques by supplying them with a very low cost robotics platform that they can build themselves; 

- Development of a simple mobile platform, with low energy consumption, low power wireless communication capabilities (using Bluetooth LE for instance) and sensor integration; 

- The platform is intended to be used by undergraduate students with some level of programming and electronics skills and to validate the energy harvesting modules.

- A software library to control the robot and get information from it was developed and published on mbed online platform. Library functions documentation was also published on mbed.

- A laboratory course was developed to provide students with the possibility of implementing, on mobile robotic educational platforms, some computational solutions for navigation, localization and mapping.

IEEE RAS Award CEMRA Lab Course Jun 2017


Robotraft is an international internship with a unique summer course in robotics for BSc to PhD students. The students attending this 2-months program have the opportunity to work in robotics, focusing on several state-of-the-art approaches and technologies. The summer course, now in its second edition and entitled as the 2nd Robotics Craftsmanship International Academy (RobotCraft 2017), will provide a general overview of the science and art behind robotics, teaching the basis around Arduino programming and ROS.
