Program Recently, sparsity has been playing a central role in signal processing, machine learning, and data science. Sparse representation, also known as compressed sensing, aims at reconstructing (or learning) a signal (or a function) from observed data, which may be under-sampled and
disturbed by noise. In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to sparse representation (compressed sensing)혻 for signal estimation, and its applications to optimal control. In particular, I will give an introduction to “maximum hands-off control,” which has the minimum support length among all feasible solutions for saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions in control systems.


Workshop 2 Human-like Navigation and Multimodal Data Analysis for Outdoor Security Robots toward Long-term Autonomy
Time & Place Oct. 13 (Tuesday) 9:00~13:00 (4 hours) / Online Room 2 Event Hall 3
Organizer Dr. Seungmin Baek
(LG Electronics)
Fee Free
Presenatation English
Program In the recent COVID-19 crisis, interest in the use of autonomous robots is growing in situations such as security, quarantine, and delivery.혻Such an application of robot system requires the integration of a robust HW platform for rugged environment, stable autonomous navigation, intelligent detection and tracking algorithm and multiagent monitoring and control technology.혻Especially, security robots must be specialized for abnormal and harsh conditions.혻In order to develop this security robot system, various organizations have been developing for several years and many technical challenges are being tackled.

In this workshop, we’d like to share the advanced solutions for security robot system and introduce the data collected in this process.
