A work by the researchers from the Intelligent Service Robotics group- Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Moratuwa has been accepted at the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) 2019. IROS is a premier internal conference in the field of Robotics and it is in first 20 sources of Special category for Robotics in Google Scholar Metrics with h5 index of 58 . This year the conference will be held on November 4 - 8, in the Venetian Macao, Macau, China.
The research is titled “Situation-awareness for Proactive Robots in HRI” and is authored by Chapa Sirithunge (PhD student), Ravindu Tharaka Bandara (Masters student), Dr. Buddhika Jayasekara and Dr. Chandima Pathirana. The article was about decision-making criteria developed for social robots to perceive the behavior of humans before initiating an interaction with them. This will be a chance for local researchers to share their experience with the experts through out the globe. It is worthy to note that this is the forth consecutive time a member from Intelligent Service Robotics Group presenting at IROS since 2016.
