Event List

  • ERAU SeaPerch Competition, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Daytona Campus

    SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.

  • IHMC Robotics Lab Open House, IHMC - Institute for Human and Machine Cognition

    The Robotics Lab at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) will celebrate National Robotics Week with an open house event on Friday, April 12th, from 4-7 PM. The lab houses several robots, ranging from fast running bipeds, exoskeletons, and humanoids. Researchers have converged here from around the world, including the Netherlands, Spain, Romania, France, and Germany. Of course, we also have several researchers from the US, representing MIT, Berkeley, Georgia Tech, Olin College, UF, FSU, FIT, UWF, and Embry Riddle. This event is great for families and is a perfect opportunity for kiddos to see science in action!

  • Florida Regional MATE ROV Competition , MATE ROV

    MATE’s international student underwater robotics (remotely operated vehicle or ROV) competition consists of an international event and a network of 22 regional contests that take place across U.S. and in Canada, Hong Kong, Scotland, Japan, and Egypt. Student teams from upper elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, home schools, community colleges, universities, and community organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club and 4-H, participate. The competition consists of three different "classes" that vary depending on the sophistication of the ROVs and the mission requirements.

  • We Robot 2014: Risks & Opportunities, University of Miami School of law

    We Robot 2014: Risks & Opportunities” is a conference at the intersection of the law, policy, and technology of robotics. Participants include academics, practitioners, and developers in the form of scholarly papers or presentations of relevant projects. Through this interdisciplinary gathering, we are encouraging conversations between the people designing, building, and deploying robots, and the people who design or influence the legal and social structures in which robots will operate. Topics include: * Risks and opportunities of robot deployment in the workplace, the home, and other contexts where robots and humans work side-by-side. * Issues related to software-only systems such as automated trading agents. * Regulatory and licensing issues raised by robots in the home, the office, in public spaces (e.g. roads), and in specialized environments such as hospitals. * Design of legal rules that will strike the right balance between encouraging innovation and safety, particularly in the context of autonomous robots. * Issues of legal or moral responsibility, e.g. relating to autonomous robots or robots capable of exhibiting emergent behavior. * Usage of robots in public safety and military contexts. * Privacy issues relating to data collection by robots, either built for that purpose or incidental to other tasks. * Intellectual property challenges relating to robotics as a nascent industry, to works or inventions created by robots, or otherwise peculiar to robotics. * Issues arising from automation of professional tasks such as unauthorized practice of law or medicine. * How legal scholars should think about robots, and how roboticists should think about the legal code.
