About these proceedings


This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 18th Annual Conference on Towards Autonomous Robotics, TAROS 2017, held in Guildford, UK, in July 2017.

The 43 revised full papers presented together with 13 short papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 66 submissions. The papers discuss robotics research drawn from a wide and diverse range of topics, such as swarm and multi-robotic systems; human-robot interaction; robotic learning and imitation; robot navigation, planning and safety; humanoid and bio-inspired robots; mobile robots and vehicles; robot testing and design; detection and recognition; learning and adaptive behaviours; interaction; soft and reconfigurable robots; and service and industrial robots.
