Robotics Track at Utah Mike Brady Research Symposium September 16, 2010 The Year(s) of the Robot John Hollerbach University of Utah The MIT Years: Highlights Year of the Robot Books in robotics ISRR IJRR Robotics in the 1970s Robotics was not generally considered a separate, respectable scientific endeavor. Heavy orientation towards industrial robotics. Limitations in envisaged and realized robot capabilities. No research journal dedicated to robotics. No high-level international research conference in robotics. Year of the Robot (1981-82) Accelerate the field of robotics via: Source book on manipulation Start a journal Start an annual or biannual conference Bring in outside experts for extended stays Outline an educational program Build a robot hand A source book with sections: Dynamics Trajectory planning Compliance and force control Feedback control Spatial planning Each section had a substantial introduction that served as a tutorial. Papers by 19 top authors were retyped into a common format. Published in 1982 Translated into Japanese Utah/MIT Dextrous Hand Collaboration with Steve Jacobsen (Utah) Begun in 1981, completed in 1987 12 copies were made Pneumatic, tendon-driven actuation Updated source book in robotics Published in 1989 16 commissioned papers by leading experts Last funding from SDF 1981: Representative Problems in Robotics Recognizing objects in the real world. Grasping arbitrary objects. Two-armed, cooperative manipulation. Learning from experience. 2010: DARPA BAA on Mobile Manipulation Recognizing objects in the real world. Grasping arbitrary objects. Two-armed, cooperative manipulation. Learning from experience. Visitors and Workshops Renowned visitors spent from weeks to months at the MIT AI Lab. Harry Asada, Rod Brooks, Roy Featherstone, John Luh, Ken Salisbury, Russ Taylor Workshop on Dextrous Robot Hands. Asada, Flateau, Harmon, Hillis, Hogan, Jacobsen, Purbrick, Raibert, Roth, Ruoff, Salisbury ISRR 1983: Bretton Woods Funded initially by SDF Organized similar to Gordon conferences Bretton Woods Brady and Paul Kyoto Hanafusa and Inoue Gouvieux Faugeras and Giralt 1987 Santa Cruz Bolles and Roth 1989 Tokyo Miura and Arimoto 1993 Pittsburgh Kanade and Paul 1995 Herrsching Giralt and Hirzinger 1997 Shonan, Japan Shirai and Hirose 1999 Snowbird Hollerbach and Koditschek Lorne, Australia Jarvis and Zelinsky 2003 Siena Dario and Chatila 2005 San Francisco Thrun, Brooks and Durrant-Whyte 2007 Hiroshima Kaneko and Nakamura 2009 Lucerne Siegwart and Hirzinger 2011 Flagstaff Christensen and Khatib ISRR 1983 Participants ISRR 1985: Gouvieu IJRR founded in 1982. Mike Brady and Richard (Lou) Paul are inaugural editors. Editorial Board is similar to ISRR organizing committee. Published by MIT Press. First journal dedicated to Robotics Research 2001 First MM publishing 2009 Data set papers The Founding of IJRR IJRR History Mike Brady and Lou Paul are the inaugural editors. Tomas Lozano-Perez replaces Lou Paul. Number of issues increases from 4 to 6. Tomas retires, Mike continues as sole editor. Jennet Batten becomes Managing Editor. Sage Press buys IJRR from MIT Press, issues increase from 6 to 12. Mike retires, John Hollerbach becomes editor. 2010 Number of issues increases to 14. Jennet Batten: 20 Years as IJRR Managing Editor Mike Brady co-founder and editor 1982-1999 of The International Journal of Robotics Research A celebration of his achievement on brining the Journal into existence on the occasion of his retirement, September, 2010 1999 Editorial Board Testimonials
