The activity at IAS-Lab concerns the study of several fields of Robotics. Our research cover the areas of computer vision, humanoids and wheeled robot programming, virtual simulation, biomechanical model based on human biosignal and wearable robots design for rehabilitation purposes.
Desert Lion, the team of IAS-LAB, took part at the MBZIRC Challenge and... IAS-Lab is bronze medal (3rd place).
Together with the team composed by Czech Technical University in Prague, University of Pennsylvania and University of Lincoln, the IAS-LAB team take part in the Grand Challenge http://www.mbzirc.com/challenge <http://www.mbzirc.com/challenge>.
The joined team scored third: http://www.mbzirc.com/scoreboard/challenge4#viewscore <http://www.mbzirc.com/scoreboard/challenge4#viewscore> and so we are bronze medal.
Congratulation to all IAS-Lab members which worked very hard for this result.
Mercoledì 19 ottobre 2016 alle ore 16, presso l'Accademia Galileiana (Sala del Guariento, Via Accademia 7), si terrà il XVI seminario annuale di tecnologie dell'informazione in cui sarà affrontato il tema dei nuovi sviluppi assunti dalla robotica educativa in qualità di strumento di supporto all'apprendimento nella scuola del XXI secolo. Terranno il seminario i prof. Emanuele Menegatti e Michele Moro del Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione.

In Aula Magna A. Lepschy took place the workshop "Embodied-Brain System Science and Robotics Engineering for Rehabilitation", with the contribution of researchers from Tokyo and from IAS-Lab.
Here is the program of the meeting.
IAS-Lab has been selected for participation and for receiving a sponsorship to participate to the Mohamed Bin Zayed International Robotics Challenge (MBZIRC), that will take place in Abu Dhabi on February 2017. Here a list of the selected teams: http://www.mbzirc.com/qualified-teams.
Jeff Burke and Matteo Munaro will demonstrate OpenPTrack at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) on April 6. Their presentation, “Real-Time Person Tracking on Jetson with OpenPTrack", will provide an overview of OpenPTrack, real-world deployments, and the technology roadmap using the NVIDIA Jetson, for which OpenPTrack has recently been optimized.
GTC is the largest annual event for GPU developers; this year it will be held April 4-7 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, California.
The recording of the talk is available here: http://on-demand.gputechconf.com/gtc/2016/video/S6742.html.
02/12/15 - 03/12/15:
IAS-Lab and Litte Lab participate in Genoa to the kick-off meeting of the European project RoboESL (a part of the project Erasmus+). The aim of RoboESL is to support school to tackle early school leaving (ESL) introducing robot in the extra curriculum activities. The coordinator of the project is “Liceo Fermi” of Genoa. The other partners, in addition to the department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua, are the department of Education of the University of Latvia, School of Robotics of Genoa, the European Lab for Educational Technology (Edumotiva) and some schools of Latvia and Greece.
Matteo Munaro will give a talk entitled "OpenPTrack: Extending people tracking to RGB-D camera networks" at Microsoft on May the 11th in Redmond and at Google on May the 13th in Mountain View.

Today IAS-Lab meets young engineers of 1st and 3rd year of BSc in Information Engineering. We showed the current research activities of our lab and invited them to join the lab.
"Mattino di Padova" talked about IAS-Lab and its research activities and future projects.
IAS-Lab will attend the 2nd of RoboBusiness Europe that will be held at LEGOLAND® Hotel & Conference Center in Billund, DENMARK. RoboBusiness Europe is a first-of-its-kind robotics event for the continent. The purpose of RoboBusiness Europe is to provide a platform for robotic developers and end-users to meet and, thus, to bridge the development within robotics with the end-users’s needs.
IAS-Lab will participate to Wired Next Fest 2014 in Milano. We will show demonstrations of our algorithms for people tracking and our robot in action.
Furthermore, on Sunday 18th May at 14:30, the current research activities of the lab will be presented during an oral talk.
Elisa Tosello held an invited talk during the 2nd ROS-I Community Forum Webinar about non real-time ROS interface for real-time COMAU controllers developed by IAS-Lab.
