Best Paper in Robotic Planning at the Internationa..
KAIST School of Computing Ph.D. graduate Junghwan Lee, and M.S. student Heechan Shin (advisor: Prof. Sungeui Yoon) won the Best Paper in Robotic Planning award at the ICAR 2017, held last July 10 through 12 at Hong Kong. The award recognized their research on data-driven kinodynamic RRT. This research was on a method for constructing a database of known possible states and inputs of a kidonynamic robot’s movements for future reference, such that robots can simply search the database. By removing the need to calculate the inputs in real time, the research greatly reduces the computational load of robotic movement. Lee has a history of outstanding academic achievement, having published multiple papers at various internationally renowned journals and conferences during the course of his Ph.D. years, including the IEEE Transaction on Robotics (TRO), International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), and the International Conference on Intelligent Robotics and Systems (IROS).
