We gladly announce that the conference paper submission called “The RoboEarth language: Representing and Exchanging Knowledge about Actions, Objects, and Environments” (Moritz Tenorth, Alexander Perzylo, Reinhard Lafrenz and Michael Beetz) has won the Best Cognitive Robotics Paper Award at ICRA 2012.
The paper covers the design of the semantic RoboEarth language and how it is used to describe and reason about tasks, objects and environments in a way that allows to share knowledge between different robots. Descriptions of tasks include information about required physical attributes and software components, which is being matched against a robot’s capabilities entailed in its semantic self-model. This allows to infer whether a robot is capable of performing a certain task and if not, how it might be enabled by downloading additional information from RoboEarth.
RoboEarth is co-organizing a Special Issue on
Cloud Robotics and Automation in the Journal
IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE).
Submission Deadline: March 15, 2014
