NTNU delegation at SWARM 2017 met the award winning pioneer of robotics Prof. Shigeo Hirose

I had the honor to be part of the delegation of the Department of Engineering Cybernetics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and to participate to the 2nd International Symposium on Swarm Behavior and Bio-Inspired Robotics (SWARM), Kyoto, Japan.

I presented the following article:

Filippo Sanfilippo, Øyvind Stavdahl and Pål Liljebäck. SnakeSIM: a Snake Robot Simulation Framework for Perception-Driven Obstacle-Aided Locomotion. In Proceeding of the 2nd International Symposium on Swarm Behavior and Bio-Inspired Robotics (SWARM), Kyoto, Japan, 2017.

Here, a group photo with my colleagues from NTNU, Professor Jan Tommy Gravdahl and Phd Candidate Ida-Louise Garmann Borlaug, together with Professor Shigeo Hirose. It was a great honor to meet Professor Shigeo Hirose who is an award winning pioneer of robotics technology, especially for bio-inspired robotic snakes.

I thank all my co-authors, Professor Øyvind Stavdahl and Doctor Pål Liljebäck, and I congratulate all of them for their contribution.
