Our paper What Stands-in for a Missing Tool? A Prototypical Grounded Knowledge-based Approach to Tool Substitution (cf. Publications/ CogRob 2018) has been accepted for the International Cognitive Robotics Workshop of the International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR).
I was a visiting researcher, in the context of a collaboration with the Embedded Smart Systems Group regarding the conceptualization and development of a robot-centric object knowledge acquisition approach.
Our article Dexterous Underwater Manipulation from Distant
Onshore Locations has been accepted for publication in the IEEE
Robotics and Automation Magazine.
In a three weeks long campaign in June, the project’s final trials were conducted. The final integration of software and hardware components of all partners took place.
During this period various integration tests were performed in parallel with the goal of making the entire system – with its divers components – robust for the final demonstration that was performed on 28th of June.
The demonstration showed DexROV’s main project objective: the deployment of a ROV to a manipulation scenario under real underwater sea conditions in Marseille and providing a stable satellite communication/control channel to the Mission Control Center at Space Applications Services in Zaventem which is about 1000km away from Marseille.

Our paper High-Fidelity Deep-Sea Perception Using Simulation in the Loop (cf. Publications/ CAMS 2018) has been accepted for the 11th IFAC Conference on Control Applications in Marine Systems, Robotics, and Vehicles.
Project meeting and review (25.04 – 26.04) have been quite successful at Space Applications Services in Zaventem! We are heading towards the upcoming sea trials this summer.
My work Hierarchical Learning of Object Appearance Characteristics for
Detection and Shape Reasoning From Noisy Point Clouds has been accepted for the DGR (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Robotik) Days 2017.
Our paper, Robotic Bridge Statics Assessment within Strategic Flood Evacuation Planning Using Low-Cost Sensors, is accepted at IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics, Shanghai, China, 2017. We also were Finalist for Best Student Paper for this submission.
