HRI-US will be a sponsor of the International Conference on Robotics and Automation, which is held in Montreal, Canada from May 20-24. HRI-US researchers will be presenting seven papers. Topics include advances in traffic scene analysis and understanding from video and lidar, motion planning for automated vehicles and robots, multi-agent reinforcement learning, and robot planning for crowd navigation.

Below is a list of contributions from HRI.

  1. Egocentric Vision-based Future Vehicle Localization for Intelligent Driving Assistance Systems. Yu Yao, Mingze Xu, Chiho Choi, David J. Crandall, Ella M. Atkins, Behzad Dariush.
  2. Goal-oriented Object Importance Estimation in On-road Driving Videos. Mingfei Gao, Ashish Tawari, Sujitha Martin.

  3. The H3D Dataset for Full-Surround 3D Multi-Object Detection and Tracking in Crowded Urban Scenes.   Abhishek Patil, Srikanth Malla, Haiming Gang, Yi-Ting Chen.

  4. Dynamic Traffic Scene Classification with Space-Time Coherence. Athma Narayanan, Isht Dwivedi, Behzad Dariush.

  5. Dynamic Channel: A Planning Framework for Crowd Navigation. Chao Cao, Peter Trautman, Soshi Iba.

  6. Interaction-Aware Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning for Mobile Agents with Individual Goals. Anahita Mohseni-Kabir, David Isele, Kikuo Fujimura.

  7. Uncertainty-Aware Data Aggregation for Deep Imitation Learning. Yuchen Cui, David Isele, Scott Niekum, Kikuo Fujimura.

HRI very much appreciates the proactive volunteering of our associates who serve as reviewers and are on the conference editorial board. This year, Katsu Yamane is serving as an Editor.

ICRA is a flagship conference of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, bringing together the world's top robotics researchers and most important companies to share ideas and advances in robotics and automation.

The event attracts more than 3000 participants each year. Many of the most important developments in robotics and automation have historically been first introduced at ICRA.
