ICRA 2019


Welcome Message from the

Conference Chair

Dear colleagues, As the flagship conference of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, ICRA will bring together the world’s top researchers and most important companies to share ideas and advances in our field. Many of the most important developments in robotics and automation have historically been first exposed at ICRA, and 2019 will take this trend one step further. As the practical and socio-economic impact of our field continues to expand, the role of industry-centered activities has grown and will be a critical aspect of the meeting. Holding ICRA 2019 in Montreal reflects a fantastic confluence between the rapid growth in our field, the increasing impact of robotics societally, the recognition of robotics as a priority in Canada, and the growth of Montreal as a hub for new technologies. Montreal also happens to be a terrific city for visitors who want to do networking and scientific outreach in a welcoming and culturally vibrant context. Montreal is one of the oldest major cities in North America and has a truly exceptional and accessible culinary and nightlife scene, and it is readily accessible on foot from our conference venue. We welcome you to Montreal and are confident you will find it very rewarding. Just be prepared to feel a bit sad when you remember that you cannot stay forever.

Dear Member,

I would like to make you aware of the opportunity to join one or more IEEE Technical Communities at no charge.

Because of the rate at which new technical fields evolve, it is important to create nimble communities focused on fast-growing topic areas. These communities facilitate knowledge-sharing, collaboration, and the development of programs which challenge established technologies through novel research and applications. Some communities are still in the incubation phase, recruiting thought leaders and volunteers for communications, meetings or conferences, and developing plans for programs of interest. Other communities are more established, with information/news portals, community communications, and other ways in which those interested in the technology area can connect and work for change.

Currently, there are sixteen technical communities in which you can participate at no charge. On behalf of IEEE, I would like to invite you to learn more about these communities NOW by following the icons/titles below. Each will bring you to the IEEE Membership and Subscriptions Catalog, which will provide more information as well as the ability to join these communities for free.

You can sign up for any of these communities, regardless of your IEEE and Society affiliation.

Come with us and be a part of a community that will take you to the next level of technology!

Robotic Apple Harvesting in Washington State

December 1st, 2015
Join us on December 15th for the “holiday special” webinar on robotic apple harvesting!​

IEEE RAS TC on Agricultural Robotics and Automation
Webinar #


​December 15th at 12 noon US Eastern Time


​ ​

​Robotic Apple Harvesting in Washington State



​ Joe Davidson and Abhisesh Silwal​, Washington State University


​ ​

The lack of mechanical harvesting technologies is a significant problem that threatens the long-term economic sustainability of the U.S. tree fruit industry. This webinar presents preliminary results from a project designed to address this problem by employing mechanization and human-machine collaboration in the production of high-quality apples for the fresh market. Dynamic analysis of hand picking has been conducted in order to determine optimal patterns for fruit removal and to facilitate the design of an underactuated, prototype end-effector. An apple identification algorithm that uses a hierarchical approach to improve the accuracy of apple detection for robotic harvesting is also discussed. Field testing of the integrated system was recently completed in a commercial apple orchard in Washington State. Some preliminary test results related to manipulation performance, vision performance, and overall system cycle time are also presented.



Joe Davidson received the B.S. degree from the United States Military Academy, West Point, N.Y., in 2004. After completing military service, he was a project manager with CH2M Hill from 2009 to 2012. He received the M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University (WSU) in 2013 and is currently a Ph.D. student in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at WSU. His research interests include dynamics, field robotics, numerical analysis, and additive manufacturing.

Abhisesh Silwal received the B.Eng. degree in Electronics and Communication from Tribhuvan University, Nepal, in 2009 and the M.Eng. degree in Mechatronics from the Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, Thailand, in 2012. He is currently working as a research assistant at Washington State University while pursuing his Ph.D. in Agricultural Automation Engineering. His current research interests include machine vision systems, field robotics, human-machine collaboration, and algorithm development.

IEEE RAS TC on AgRA Webinar #​31

August 25th, 2015


September 23rd at 10 am US Eastern Time

​ The BoniRob–An Autonomous Mobile Platform for Agricultural Applications

​ Slawomir Sander, Deepfield Robotics

​ In this talk we will present the latest version of the BoniRob. BoniRob is a multi-purpose platform for agricultural applications. Its 12 joints enable a quasi omnidirectional driving, including changing the track width. This allows the robot to be used in a wide range of applications. The BoniRob has a slot and can carry an application module for a specific use-case. Example use-cases are plant scouting, precision spraying, and weeding. We will show example applications from publicly-funded projects as well as describe our navigation module which enables autonomous navigation over row-based cultivations.

​ Dr. Slawomir Sander (born Slawomir Grzonka) is a Senior Research Scientist at Deepfield Robotics, responsible for software development and product owner of the agricultural platform BoniRob. He studied computer science at the University of Freiburg where he received a Masters degree in June 2006 and a Dr. rer. nat. degree in 2011. His research interests lie in the areas of unmanned aerial vehicles, simultaneous localization and mapping, human activity recognition, and agricultural robotics. For his work on autonomous quadrotor systems, he received best paper awards at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in 2009 and at the International Conference and Exhibition on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) in 2010.  Dr. Sander was furthermore nominated for best paper awards at ICRA 2010 for his work on human activity-based mapping. In 2014, he scored 2nd in the European ERF Tech Transfer Award with the BoniRob.
