2022 International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) Recap
ICRA 2022 came and went and it was wonderful to be back in-person with the robotics research community. It was also really great to finally meet some colleagues (and heros), such as Andra Keay and Ken Goldberg in-person after a couple years of collaboration over virtual chats.
From a professional perspective, Halodi Robotics had a very successful recruitment mission and I’m excited for the next generation of diverse robotics engineers.
From a personal perspective, it felt great to see the latest in robotics research and brings me back to the days when I was chasing conferences as a grad student.
Hello #ICRA2022 and #robotics friends! 🤖— Nicholas Nadeau 🤖 (@EngNadeau) May 26, 2022
Following the awesome initiative of @girlinrobotics #CoffeewithaResearcher, let’s talk about the future of robotics and research after ICRA this past week 🧵#AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter #phdchat
Some additional #icra2022 #robotics insights from the past week: Imitation learning opens up a whole new paradigm for motion control and behaviours— Nicholas Nadeau 🤖 (@EngNadeau) May 27, 2022
Not just from a “cool new ML applied to robotics” perspective, but from how future research will approach problems
Big shoutout to my alma mater robotics lab at ETS for their awesome presentation on tactile sensors.
Kudos to JC Sicotte-Brisson from my alma mater @etsmtl robotics lab for his awesome #ICRA2022 presentation on “Capacitive Tactile Sensor Using Mutual Capacitance Sensing Method forincreased Resolution” 🤘🤖🤘 pic.twitter.com/o331QVBqjr— Nicholas Nadeau 🤖 (@EngNadeau) May 26, 2022
I’m looking forward to ICRA 2023 in London, but at least I have a bunch of new laptop stickers to keep me company until then.
The spirit of #ICRA2022 lives on: more laptop stickers 🤖— Nicholas Nadeau 🤖 (@EngNadeau) May 27, 2022
I’m really starting to understand the idea that laptop stickers are like prison tattoos for tech people 🙃 pic.twitter.com/ZsgvGG9r14
