The 2017 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2017) will be held in Vancouver, Canada, September 24–28, 2017. The theme of IROS 2017 is “Friendly People, Friendly Robots”. Robots and humans are becoming increasingly integrated in various application domains. We work together in factories, hospitals and households, and share the road. This collaborative partnership of humans and robots gives rise to new technological challenges and significant research opportunities in developing friendly robots that can work effectively with, for, and around people.
IROS is 30 years old in Vancouver! To celebrate this important milestone, we have solicited from the IROS community mementos in IROS history. The contributions have been in the form of photos, videos or other memorbilia. They have been organized, and are displayed at the Vancouver Convention Centre as well as through various soical network tools: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (see top of this page). Thank you all for your contributions!
