"Dr. Pirjanian’s research in robotics is exemplary and we are very pleased to honor him with this award," said Ken Goldberg, Professor of Engineering at UC Berkeley and Chair of the IEEE Committee that selected him. "Paolo has demonstrated great leadership in transferring research in automation and vision technologies into practice at Evolution Robotics. Paolo sets a fine example of what a young engineer can accomplish in our field."

As Chief Scientist at Evolution Robotics, Dr. Pirjanian’s main work is focused on developing component technologies in computer vision, vision-based navigation, system architecture, and human-robot interaction for cost-effective robotics products. His work has been the driving force behind the Evolution Robotics Software Platform (ERSP™) that is driving the development of next-generation robotics applications and devices. Prior to joining Evolution Robotics, Dr. Pirjanian initiated several research thrusts on multi-robot systems for space exploration at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Results of his work have been featured on CNN TV, CNN.com, NASA TV, and other media. He received his Ph.D. degree in robotics from Aalborg University, Denmark where he also served as a research professor.

“I am truly honored to receive this award from the IEEE RAS, and I share it with a team of dedicated and very talented people at Evolution, as well as our investors who are persistently pursuing a rare vision for consumer robotics,” said Dr. Pirjanian. “The development of cutting-edge and exciting robotics technology continues to drive new ideas and push the limits of robotics applications, and I am proud to be a part of it. It is thanks to companies like Evolution Robotics who continue to propel robotics to the next level that spur the creation of innovative robotics products.”

Im Focus: Löschbare Tinte für den 3-D-Druck

Im 3-D-Druckverfahren durch Direktes Laserschreiben können Mikrometer-große Strukturen mit genau definierten Eigenschaften geschrieben werden. Forscher des Karlsruher Institus für Technologie (KIT) haben ein Verfahren entwickelt, durch das sich die 3-D-Tinte für die Drucker wieder ‚wegwischen‘ lässt. Die bis zu hundert Nanometer kleinen Strukturen lassen sich dadurch wiederholt auflösen und neu schreiben - ein Nanometer entspricht einem millionstel Millimeter. Die Entwicklung eröffnet der 3-D-Fertigungstechnik vielfältige neue Anwendungen, zum Beispiel in der Biologie oder Materialentwicklung.

Beim Direkten Laserschreiben erzeugt ein computergesteuerter, fokussierter Laserstrahl in einem Fotolack wie ein Stift die Struktur. „Eine Tinte zu entwickeln,...

Im Focus: Leichtbau serientauglich machen

Immer mehr Autobauer setzen auf Karosserieteile aus kohlenstofffaserverstärktem Kunststoff (CFK). Dennoch müssen Fertigungs- und Reparaturkosten weiter gesenkt werden, um CFK kostengünstig nutzbar zu machen. Das Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) hat daher zusammen mit der Volkswagen AG und fünf weiteren Partnern im Projekt HolQueSt 3D Laserprozesse zum automatisierten Besäumen, Bohren und Reparieren von dreidimensionalen Bauteilen entwickelt.

Automatisiert ablaufende Bearbeitungsprozesse sind die Grundlage, um CFK-Bauteile endgültig in die Serienproduktion zu bringen. Ausgerichtet an einem...

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
