The 2015 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) took place in Hamburg, Germany during September 28 to October 02, 2015. The theme of the 2015 IROS conference was “Gateway to the Era of Robots” with the goal to create a variety of opportunities and formats for a lively exchange among participants and an platform to connect robotics academia and industry. Quite a lot innovative results on various robotics topics are presented during the conference and plenty of companies have demonstrated exciting new products during the exhibition.
We have presented three papers during the conference, including
1. Keyu Wu, Liao Wu and Hongliang Ren, Motion planning of continuum tubular robots based on features extracted from statistical atlas.
2. Zheng Li, Haoyong Yu, Hongliang Ren, Philip W.Y.Chiu and Ruxu Du, A Novel Constrained Tendon-driven Serpentine Manipulator.
3. Yanjie Chen, Zheng Li, Wenjun Xu, Yaonan Wang and Hongliang Ren, Minimum Sweeping Area Motion Planning for Flexible Serpentine Surgical Manipulator with Kinematic Constraints.
