LIRMM HRP-4 Inaugural Workshop

2014/03/06-07 Saint Priest Amphitheater, Saint Priest campus, Montpellier

In the frame of the French program RobotEx, the LIRMM was equipped with Kawada’s HRP-4 humanoid robot. For its inaugural setting, we decided to gather a number of researchers worldwide to a scientific workshop on humanoid robotics, its current state-of-the-art achievements, its relation with human and its potential applications. This half and full day workshop will be hold at LIRMM.
