Drones are proxies for space invaders in this game.
SpacedOut is a real life remake of the old classic Space Invaders arcade game made during the GeekCon2016 hackathon.Using Drones equipped with light sensors and LED strips we animated the space drones and arranged them in a game formation using a specially developed autonomous flight software. On the ground the player sits on the laser gunner station which moves across rails and shoots frickin' laser beams.You can see the video here:and the makin...

Not a bad idea. If people can make money from paintball and laser tag this should be a hit.

Reply in the forums and MathWorks folk will help you out. Depending how old your MATLAB is, my toolboxes might still work for you.

If you're a student or young researcher who attends ICRA read on. I'm the program chair for ICRA2018 and would like to get some input on what people in this group enjoy (or not) about the ICRA format. Megan Emmons who chairs the IEEE RAS Student Activities Committee has put this survey together (thanks Megan) so if you have an opinion please let us know.

It was tried once that I know of, but not sure how that was evaluated. I'm not sure if favours famous people, if anything I probably hold famous people to a higher bar.

The biggest problem for mobile social robots in the future might be .... children! This paper came my way, and the topic is both humorous and serious, the abstract is:

Social robots working in public space often stimulate children’s curiosity. However, sometimes children also show abusive behavior toward robots. In our case studies, we observed in many cases that children persistently obstruct the robot’s activity. Some actually abused the robot by saying bad things, and at times even kicking or punching the robot. We developed a statistical model of occurrence of children’s abuse. Using this model together with a simulator of pedestrian behavior, we enabled the robot to predict the possibility of an abuse situation and escape before it happens. We demonstrated that with the model the robot successfully lowered the occurrence of abuse in a real shopping mall.


I wonder what we might learn about future adults from their behaviour towards robots as children. Full paper at http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2696468
