Premiato Tommaso – Alla conferenza annuale del SIDRA ieri ad Ancona, Tommaso Lisini Baldi del nostro #sirslab di #Siena è stato premiato per la migliore presentation interattiva del lavoro : " Design of a Wearable Interface for Lightweight Robotic Arm for People with Mobility Impairments" con Giovanni Spagnoletti, Mihai Cip Dragusanu e Domenico Prattichizzo. Un grande risultato per Tommaso Lisini Baldi per Giovanni e Mihai e per tutto il #sirslab che lavora con passione e entusiasmo su temi di ricerca per il miglioramento della qualità della vita. COMPLIMENTI Tommaso. Università degli Studi di Siena Ingegneria dell'Informazione e Scienze Matematiche, Università di Siena @unisiena @diism_official SIDRA è La Società Italiana Docenti e Ricercatori in Automatica (SIDRA) si propone di coordinare le attivita’ di ricerca nel campo dell’Automatica (settore scientifico disciplinare ING-INF/04).
This is a very interesting article that explains how to write a research paper and in general how to write about science. _DP

Maria Pozzi (UNISI), Virginia Ruiz Garate (IIT), and Maximo Roa (DLR) organize a RSS 2019 Workshop on “Emerging paradigms for robotic manipulation: from the lab to the productive world”, to be held in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany on Sunday June 23rd, 2019.
Abstract: Novel robotic developments are going hand in hand with the need for innovation in manufacturing and service applications. Large industries need increasingly fast adapting production lines, while SMEs are adopting collaborative robots to gain a competitive edge in global markets. Additionally, an increasing number of companies are producing and using service robots. In this emerging framework, robots should be able to grasp and manipulate different tools, and interact with fast changing or even unstructured environments involving human users or co-workers. Therefore, these new “real-world” scenarios require innovative grasping and manipulation paradigms that can cope with the needs of uncertain environments. Solutions are being proposed to deal with this challenge, including soft manipulation, AI-driven grasp planning, and human-robot collaborative manipulation. This workshop will bring together research experts as well as representatives of companies to discuss how new approaches in the field can efficiently be transferred from the research labs to the productive world.
Call for posters/demos:
The poster session at this workshop will give the opportunity to researchers to discuss their latest results and ongoing research activities with the community. During a flask talk presentation, presenters will have one minute to introduce their work to all workshop attendees.
We also solicit suggestions for hands-on demonstrations, to give more practical insights about the workshop topics.
To participate, please submit by May 21st, 2019 (AoE) a poster/demo title and an abstract (max 2 pages) in PDF format (RSS regular paper template) via email to all the organizers:
– Maria Pozzi (firstname.lastname@example.org)
– Virginia Ruiz Garate (email@example.com)
– Máximo A. Roa (firstname.lastname@example.org)
All contributions will undergo a review by the organizers, and the authors will be notified of acceptance by May 24th, 2019 (AoE).
I am very impressed to see how actual are the #rules of the #garage listed by HP for their #creative people. The rules of #innovation belongs to humans and remains unchanged with time. _DP

Il quinto video della seria per Siena TV / Buongiorno Siena di Daniele Magrini sulle nostre attività di ricerca sulla #roboticachirurgica #robotics #haptics #tactilefeedback #sirslab Università degli Studi di Siena Sienna Diism. Il video completo su youtube
my team and I realized at the University of Siena a series of short video lectures on robotic grasping and we would like to share with you the result.
The on-line course on “The Art of Grasping and Manipulation in Robotics” is now available: http://sirslab.dii.unisi.it/GraspingCourse/index.html.
Building dexterous robotic hands and studying new algorithms to control them is essential to allow industrial, service, and humanoid robots to interact with objects around them, and, possibly, with humans in a natural and safe way. The main objective of this course is to give an overview of grasp modeling and control, also introducing the SynGrasp MATLAB® Toolbox.
The course is based on the chapter on Grasping of the Springer Handbook of Robotics: https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-32552-1_38
Video Lectures have mainly been recorded during real lectures and are structured in four units.
I hope you will find this course useful. We are open to comments and suggestions on how to improve it and possibly extend it to include more topics.
