Coarobo GK Introduced at the 5th HSR AUC
Kyoto, Japan — Coarobo GK was introduced in an invited lecture at the plenary session of the 5th Human Support Robot (HSR) Annual Users’ Conference (AUC) organized by Toyota Motor Corporation.
The lecture, entitled “Getting Started with the HSR Software Development Environment for Team Collaboration on Robotics Projects and Competitions”, was conducted by Lotfi El Hafi, President & Founder of Coarobo GK, who had been invited by Toyota Motor Corporation to share his experience and results as the leader of the HSR Software Development Environment Working Group (SDE-WG) for the HSR Community, as described by the abstract below:
“The presentation describes the motivations, tools, and strategies to successfully get started with the HSR Software Development Environment (SDE) collectively developed within the HSR Community by the members of the HSR SDE Working Group with the support of Toyota Motor Corporation. The HSR SDE aims at 1) enabling interdisciplinary teams to quickly start using the HSR in their projects, and 2) accelerate research implementation and integration between the members of the HSR Community by containerizing the whole HSR development, simulation, and operation process in a virtual environment that can be conveniently shared between users. The presentation also marks the initial public release of the SDE that has been evaluated in a private testing phase through a small-scale deployment within the core members of the HSR Community since 2019. Finally, this presentation should particularly be of interest to teams collaborating on large research projects or preparing for international robotics competitions with the HSR.”
