Markus Waibel writes, "In the new episode of the Talking Robots Podcast series we interview Prof. Raja Chatila, an expert in robot navigation. Raja Chatila is a professor at the Laboratoire d'Analyse et d'Architecture des Systemes (LAAS) in Toulouse, France. He is very well known for robot control and navigation, and has designed robots that walk, drive and fly in outdoor environments, on factory floors, inside the home, and on extra-terrestrial planets. In some of his current projects he is working on assistant and companion robots (COGNIRON) and on planetary rovers (EDEN). He talks about the state of the art in robot navigation, on how to marry traditional Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) with bio-inspired, reactive approaches, and about why your living room is more complex to navigate than an extraterrestrial planet."
