Consumer Robotics Winter School
Vacuum cleaners, drones and arguable driverless cars, assistive wearables, 3D printers and virtual headsets are examples of consumer robots. This Winter School's objective is to better define consumer robotics - and specifically, identify research topics and areas.
A Field Trip to the Consumer Electronics Show (5-7 January 2017) is a part of the Winter School. CES hosts 400+ consumer robot companies which join 170,000 attendees, 3700+ exhibitors and global media for product launches and market trends.
Prof. Zexiang Li (Hong Kong University of Technology) on DJI and Consumer Drones
Dr. Steve Cousins (Savioke) on Hotel Robot Room Service
Dr. Tony Lewis (Qualcomm) on Embedded Intelligence
Prof. Ayanna Howard (Georgia Tech) on Educational Robots
Dr. Martin Buehler (Disney Research)
And more to come...
These Distinguished Colleagues have academe/industry experiences that will help students and the robotics community better understand the growing field of consumer robotics.
