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.

Robots: Our favorite Robots

The ROBOTS team has grown steadily over the years, filling its ranks with robot enthusiasts from the Switzerland, USA, Greece, UK, Brazil and Japan. We take care of everything, from digging out the latest news, to interviewing main actors in robotics, animating the episodes, maintaining the website, and mixing the podcasts. We're students, senior roboticists, hobbyists and journalists. In today's summer episode we decided it was time to share our two cents about 1) why we love robotics and 2) what robots spark our enthusiasm.
