About the Workshop

The recently established NCRA National Agricultural Robotics Lab in collaboration with the Centre for Water Informatics & Technology (WIT), the Department of Electrical Engineering at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), Pakistan is organising this workshop comprising short tutorials and mini-courses on topics related to machine learning and intelligent vehicles. 

The workshop will be a great opportunity for students, academics and professionals to get engaged with top national and international experts in robotics and related studies. Special emphasis will be laid on the exploitation of ICT tools, especially automation and sensing technologies for advancements in agricultural productivity, water efficiency and environmental monitoring. Moreover, there will be opportunities to learn about topics related to intelligent transportation, Industry 4.0, mobile robotics, assistive robotics, motion planning and system architectures throughout the event and tutorials. The event is sponsored by competitive international grants won from global IEEE Control Systems Society Outreach Fund and German Academic Exchange (DAAD). Moreoever, it is technically supported by the National Centre for Robotics and Automation (NCRA), IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (Pakistan Chapter) and Pakistan Automatic Control Research Society (ACRS). 

We request for your active participation in the event. Further, we request you to advertise the event within your organisation specially among faculty members, young researchers and graduate students.  The workshop is critical for building capacity in this sector and will help establish a fruitful co-operation between the academic community, relevant government agencies and industry.

Further details of schedule, speakers and venue will be communicated to registered participants.
