Austrian Robotics Workshop 2018

The sixth Austrian Robotics Workshop held from 17th - 18th of May here in Innsbruck brought together researchers, professionals and practitioners working on different topics in robotics to discuss recent developments and future challenges in robotics and its applications.

In the baroque ambience of the Kaiser-Leopold-Saal in the heart of historical Innsbruck, this year's edition of the Austrian Robotics Workshop of the Austrian Association for Measurement, Automation and Robotics featured such modern topics as: Robot Perception, Educational Robotics, Human-Robot Interaction or Field and Rescue Robots, Construction Robotics, Industrial applications.

The program was composed of nine contributed talks, three posters and three keynote talks by high-profile researchers from outside of Austria:

  • Stéphane Doncieux (head of the AMAC research team at the Institut Systèmes Intelligents et de Robotique (ISIR) in Paris and scientific coodrdinator of the DREAM European project) spoke about Open-ended Learning and Development in Robotics
  • Jan Peters (full professor for Intelligent Autonomous Systems at the Computer Science Department of the TU Darmstadt and head of the Robot Learning Group at the Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems) spoke about Robot Skill Learning
  • Tamim Asfour (full professor at the Institute for Anthropomatics at the KIT and Robotics and head of the High Performance Humanoid Technologies Lab (H2T)) spoke about the Engineering of Humanoids for the Real World


The contributed talks were selected from 11 submitted articles by peer review. Each article was reviewed by two members of the program committee.   

  • The Best Research Paper Award (sponsored by the IEEE RAS Austria Section) was presented to Florian Pucher for the paper Analysis of Feature Tracking Methods for Vision-Based Vibration Damping of Flexible Link Robots.
  • The Best Student Paper Award (sponsored by the  ABB Group) was presented to Florian Dannereder for the paper Development of a 3D-Printed Bionic Hand with Muscle- and Force Control
  • The Best Student Poster Award (sponsored by the GMAR-Robotics) was presented to Matthias Hirschmanner for the paper Extension of the Action Verb Corpus for Supervised Learning
