The aim of this workshop is to discuss the state of the art in mobile manipulation research. We are particularly interested in the mobile aspect of manipulation where robots need to move around in cluttered environments to manipulate everyday objects.
Robust, reliable mobile manipulation is critical for robotic applications in the home, health care and retail industries. We encourage new ideas in autonomous, semi-autonomous and tele-operated systems that integrate perception, planning and control for mobile manipulation in everyday environments shared with humans. We encourage submissions that deal with both theoretical and practical aspects of mobile manipulation: practical robotic systems that demonstrate reliable, robust behavior and state of the art techniques and algorithms for improving the performance of these systems.
