Welcome to
the

IEEE
Robotics &

Society!

What is R&A?

Robotics &
Automation involves
designing and
implementing
intelligent machines to
do work too dirty, too
dangerous, too
precise or too tedious
for humans.


What is the IEEE R&A Society?


RAS is one of the 39 societies in the 10
technical divisions of the IEEE.


RAS has about 6500 members in 95
countries
-
roughly half in the Americas, a
quarter in Europe and the Middle East, and a
quarter in Asia and Oceania.


Students make up a quarter of the RAS
membership

RAS Field of Interest

The Society strives to advance innovation, education,
and fundamental and applied research in
Robotics

and Automation.


Robotics

focuses on systems incorporating

sensors and actuators that operate

autonomously or semiautonomously in

cooperation with humans.
Robotics

research

emphasizes intelligence and

adaptability to cope with unstructured

environments.


Automation research

emphasizes
efficiency,productivity, quality, and

reliability, focusing on systems that

operate autonomously, often in

structured environments over

extended periods, and on the

explicit structuring of

such environments.

What does RAS do?

RAS fosters research and
education, professional
development and industrial
and commercial
applications of R&A
through

Conference Activities


ICRA is known world wide as the premier technical
conference in Robotics and Automation


But RAS sponsors, co
-
sponsors or technically
cosponsors many more conferences, workshops and
symposia focussing on important topics in R&A.


The next two slides show some of the conferences
we sponsor. Each one represents a lot of dedicated
effort by a team of volunteers.


See the RAS Calendar
http://www.ieee
-
ras.org/calendar

for details.
