On April 14, 2017, LEMUR members attended the Southern California Robotics Symposium (SCR), a one-day technical conference that aims to bring together roboticists from around Southern California.
This year's SCR took place in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center at USC, and had a large audience with a high density of academic institutions, research centers, and industry players. Attendees were able to listen to inspiring and interesting talks from researchers with broad expertise and interests.
Lab members also set up a booth to present the research projects they had been working on. The RoCo (Robot Compiler) team also brought pre-assembled robots like grippers and servo-driven cars to be showcased. During the networking breaks, members also had the chance to talk about these projects with other attendees in detail, and exchange ideas for collaboration and future work.
Furthermore, Tsang-Kai Chang and William Chen presented their research "Cooperative Localization in Multirobot System with Explicit Communication Mechanism" during the poster session.
Overall, our members really enjoyed attending SCR, and our presence and presentation was very well received by the attendees. We look forward to attending SCR 2018!
