Winners of 2019 Autonomous Vehicle Competition

We are now the proud champions of the 2019 Autonomous Vehicle Competition! 

Out of a total of 12 teams from 11 universities all across Korea, our now IRiS team finished first in this year’s competition (powered by Hyundai) where all teams developed and competed with their unmanned autonomous vehicles.  The autonomous driving car made by our team showed off its excellent driving skills throughout the 2-day course of the competition by incurring no penalties.

Special Seminar on Robotics by BioRob Alumni

8, March 2019. 

Today, we had a mini homecoming of its kind, where two of our BioRob lab’s alumni visited KoreaTech to share their research journeys thus far at their own alma mater.

Prof. Ildar Farkhatdinov, one of the first graduates of our BioRob lab in 2008, and  Boris Gromov, our visiting researcher back in the day, conducted a special seminar at KoreaTech where they talked about their researches ranging from assistive technologies, telerobotics, virtual reality, and intuitive multi-modal human-robot interaction using hand/arm gestures. 

After catering to an influx of queries from the attendees, the boys made their rounds to our BioRob labs to revisit the memories they’d made while they were here.

Thank you for coming, guys!
