"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: Optisches Nanoskop ermöglicht Abbildung von Quantenpunkten

Physiker haben eine lichtmikroskopische Technik entwickelt, mit der sich Atome auf der Nanoskala abbilden lassen. Das neue Verfahren ermöglicht insbesondere, Quantenpunkte in einem Halbleiter-Chip bildlich darzustellen. Dies berichten die Wissenschaftler des Departements Physik und des Swiss Nanoscience Institute der Universität Basel zusammen mit Kollegen der Universität Bochum in «Nature Photonics».

Mikroskope machen Strukturen sichtbar, die dem menschlichen Auge sonst verborgen blieben. Einzelne Moleküle und Atome, die nur Bruchteile eines Nanometers...

Im Focus: Optical Nanoscope Allows Imaging of Quantum Dots

Physicists have developed a technique based on optical microscopy that can be used to create images of atoms on the nanoscale. In particular, the new method allows the imaging of quantum dots in a semiconductor chip. Together with colleagues from the University of Bochum, scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute reported the findings in the journal Nature Photonics.

Microscopes allow us to see structures that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. However, conventional optical microscopes cannot be used to image...

Im Focus: Vollmond-Dreierlei am 31. Januar 2018

Am 31. Januar 2018 fallen zum ersten Mal seit dem 30. Dezember 1982 "Supermond" (ein Vollmond in Erdnähe), "Blutmond" (eine totale Mondfinsternis) und "Blue Moon" (ein zweiter Vollmond im Kalendermonat) zusammen - Beobachter im deutschen Sprachraum verpassen allerdings die sichtbaren Phasen der Mondfinsternis.

Nach den letzten drei Vollmonden am 4. November 2017, 3. Dezember 2017 und 2. Januar 2018 ist auch der bevorstehende Vollmond am 31. Januar 2018 ein...

Im Focus: Maschinelles Lernen im Quantenlabor

Auf dem Weg zum intelligenten Labor präsentieren Physiker der Universitäten Innsbruck und Wien ein lernfähiges Programm, das eigenständig Quantenexperimente entwirft. In ersten Versuchen hat das System selbständig experimentelle Techniken (wieder)entdeckt, die heute in modernen quantenoptischen Labors Standard sind. Dies zeigt, dass Maschinen in Zukunft auch eine kreativ unterstützende Rolle in der Forschung einnehmen könnten.

In unseren Taschen stecken Smartphones, auf den Straßen fahren intelligente Autos, Experimente im Forschungslabor aber werden immer noch ausschließlich von...

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...
