Following workshops will be held in ICRAI-2019 Conference.
Workshop-1 : 3D Reconstruction using 3DF Zephyr workshop
Dr. Waqar Shahid
NUST-College of E&ME, Rawalpindi
Introduction of Dr. Waqar Shahid
Workshop: 3DF Zephyr is the software solution by 3DFLOW to automatically deal with any 3D reconstruction and scanning challenge. No matter what camera sensor, drone or laser scanner device you are going to field. We have all the tools including drones and cameras.
Workshop Topics are same as given at this link.
Workshop-2 : Nonlinear Dynamics and Robotics
Dr. Sajid Iqbal
Department of Mechatronics & Control Engineering
University of Engineering & Technology (UET)
Introduction of Dr. Sajid Iqbal
Workshop : This workshop presents a summary of applications of chaos and fractals in robotics. Firstly, basic concepts of deterministic chaos and fractals will be discussed. Then, fundamental tools of chaos theory used for identifying and quantifying chaotic dynamics will be shared. Principal applications of chaotic dynamics and fractal structures in robotics research, such as chaotic mobile robots, chaotic behavior exhibited by mobile robots interacting with the environment, chaotic optimization algorithms, chaotic dynamics in bipedal locomotion and fractal mechanisms in modular robots will be presented. .
Workshop-3 : IEEE Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (SIGHT)
IEEE SIGHT Speaker
yet to be finalized
Workshop: Keeping in view the Sustainable Development Goals and the Social responsibility, we have partnered with the IEEE SIGHT Islamabad to promote research and innovation for sustainable development of our local community and have planned following activities to engage the participants along-with community leaders and public from the local vicinity.
The activities are described in the following section listed as follows:
1. Capacity Building Workshop titled as "FAIL: Fail Fast & Fail Often": The workshop is primarily focused on solving the community problems with the locally available resources using modern day engineering research and practice. While many people leave certain problems unsolved at the initial stages thinking that the problem requires resources that are just out of reach or look out for the external help. Erstwhile, many peoples take inspiration from it and just stick to the basics and take these mistakes as a reflection of their abilities and correct them which leads them to a feasible & sustainable solution.
2. Community Outreach Program titles as "BRIDGE": The program which will be executed in two phases is a community outreach program where one phase focuses in bringing the Public & Community Leaders on the table with the Researcher Community to discuss their problems and providing sustainable solution and the second phase focuses on bring the 2nd stake holder: Industry on table with academia to contribute necessary resources and infrastructure, therefore creating opportunities for the small underserved communities as well as industry for sustainable growth. The event scope is limited to the research areas of robotics and automation with future expansion to other areas of research as well.
3. Workshop on "How to get Humanitarian Technology Support and Financial Aid via IEEE" In this workshop we will focus on sharing information regarding how to apply for the grants being offered by IEEE HAC in different categories like SIGHT, HAC Events, HAC Projects and Conference Participation Programs and best practices will be shared with the participants by the IEEE SIGHT Volunteer.
