Synopsis

This session will see a series of short talks giving an overview of the latest research and development in robotics and computer vision at Aberystwyth. This covers research topics ranging from home, land, sea, air and space robotics. The talks will be followed by a panel with the opportunity to ask questions to the researchers involved.

This event takes place during UK Robotics Week and is part of Aberystwyth University's local celebration of robotics. For details of other events this week, see https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/cs/outreach/uk-robotics-week/

About the speakers

Dr Fred Labrosse

Fred is a senior lecturer in Computer Science, his research concerns Robotics and Computer Vision, and in particular the interface between the two fields, working on the use of visual sensors and visual navigation methods. He is also interested in the practical applications of robotics, collaborating with many customers who need sensors in remote and dangerous places.

Dr Helen Miles

Helen is a lecturer in Computer Science and a researches graphics and visualisation, and she has recently been applying this to work on the ESA/Roscosmos ExoMars mission to help scientists and engineers plan for how to use the PanCam remote sensing instrument on the rover.

Dr Colin Sauze

Colin is a research software engineer working on the Supercomputing Wales project, where he helps to solve "big data" and machine learning problems. He previously worked on autonomous boats for oceanographic sensing and surveying glaciers.

Dr Patricia Shaw

Patricia is a lecturer in Computer Science and researches how to develop robots that can learn in the same way children do. She is also interested in how robots can work alongside people both as companions and assisting independent living for those with severe disabilities.

Dr Myra Wilson

Myra is a lecturer in Computer Science. Her research interests include evolutionary robotics, ad-hoc networks, and biologically inspired robotics. She has worked on projects investigating how control systems can be evolved to improve UAV placement for ground based communications over large areas.

Our events are for adults aged 16 years and over.

For overseas delegates who wish to attend the event, please note that BCS does not issue invitation letters.
