  Distinguished Professor Jun-Ho Oh
  Director of Humanoid Robot Research Center
Chair Professor
Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)
South Korea
 

 
  Biography
 
Professor Jun-Ho Oh has been Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) since 1985 and has been at the forefront of the development of humanoid robots since 2004, when he developed the first Korean Humanoid Robot: Hubo. Since then his team introduced a series of humanoid robots including Albert Hubo, Hubo FX-1, Hubo II and DRC-HUBO. Prof Oh is Samsung Chair Professor and member of the National Academy of Engineering of Korea. For his breakthroughs in robotics he has received several awards. In June 2015 he led team KAIST to win the prestigious DARPA Robotics Challenge with their humanoid robot DRC-HUBO.

Keynote Speech - 3 : Autonomous Navigation in rough Terrain using an Unimog

Keynote Speech Abstract: For applications like forestry, firefighting or transportation tasks in earthquakes disaster areas autonomous vehicles are necessarily able to navigate in rough terrain. To develop such a system an adequate mechanical vehicle concept must exist. On the other hand, a perception and control architecture has to be implemented, which supports the navigation process. The all-terrain Unimog of Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks is one best cross-country mobility vehicle worldwide. In the presentation it will be discussed, how, for such a vehicle, a specific behaviour-based control architecture can be developed, which is used for the complex perception and control. Due to several examples performed in simulation and on the real Unimog the performance of the control concept will be shown.

 

  Professor Karsten Berns
  Head of the robotics research
University of Kaiserslauternat (TUKL)
Germany
 

 
  Biography
 

Professor Karsten Berns is a full professor at the University of Kaiserslautern.
His present research activities are realization of reliable, complex autonomous robotic systems. In this regard, he and his research group are developing a robotic middleware, namely Finroc, a behavior-based control architecture, iB2C, as well as different validation and verification methodologies. The main application area is off-road robotics, in which autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicles like small trucks, excavators, harvesters, tractors, and rescue robots are under development.

He is a member of the IEEE, the Gesellschaft f��nformatik (GI) and the CLAWAR Association. He is a member of the executive committee of the German Robotics Association (DGR) and is leader of the technical committee for robotic systems of the GI. He has also served as a Dean of the department of computer science at the University of Kaiserslautern (2007-2010). He is a member of the scientific directorate Schloss Dagstuhl - Leibniz Center for Informatics of the Dagstuhl Seminar. Currently, he is the spokesperson of the Center for Commercial Vehicle Technology (ZNT) at the University of Kaiserslautern.
