Robots: IROS Exhibit Hall

In today's show we take you around the Exhibit hall of the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) that took place in San Francisco last week. IROS is one of the main conferences in robotics, attracting thousands of roboticists from around the world. By bringing you around the permanent exhibit hall, we hope to give you a feel for what it was like to be there. We'll be stopping at nearly every booth, talking to leaders in the field, asking about the robots we see, listening to robots, and even doing some demos along the way.
