SAMI 2018

IROB participated at the SAMI conference (IEEE 16th World Symposium on Applied Machine Intelligence and Informatics, Herl'any, Slovakia). The event dedicated to the Memory of Pioneer of Robotics Antal (Tony) K. Bejczy. Peter Galambos (directior of IROB) and Tamas Haidegger (dept. directior of IROB) were plenary speakers at the event, and our PhD students (Tamas Daniel Nagy and Renata Nagyne Elek) presented their latest scientific results within the confines of SAMI.

2017 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS)

The 2017 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) took place at Vancouver, BC, Canada September 24–28, 2017. This year, IROS celebrated its 30th anniversary! For this occasion, the organizers collected photos and videos from the IROS community, and these mementos were later showcased during the conference. Besides the anniversary, this year’s meeting focused on the emerging challenge of human-robot collaboration. This focus was emphasized by the conference main theme: “Friendly People, Friendly Robots”. 


The ISO/IEC robotics international standardization working groups’ meeting is taking place at Óbuda University this summer, hosted by EKIK. Following a great tradition, the last day of the program is a Medical Robotics Workshop, open to the public, where invited experts deliver keynote talks regarding the current achievements and upcoming research and development results in the domain.


You can find the workshop program here.

Tamás Haidegger received the Bolyai Plaquette

Tamás Haidegger (associate professor of Óbuda University, dept. director of the Antal Bejczy Center for Intelligent Robotics and EKIK) received 'Bolyai Plaquette' at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. On 05. 07. 2017. at the auditorium of the Academy László Lovász (director of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences) and Ferenc Fülöp (director of the advisory board) accorded the Plaquette. The advisory board grant this plaquette to the Bolyai fellows, whom closed the term with excellent qualification and whose were prominent during the term of the fellowship.

The 10th Hamlyn Symposium

'The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics allows surgeons and engineers from across the globe to experience the latest developments in medical robotics. The symposium annually attracts world-leading scientists, engineers and clinicians from a wide range of disciplines associated with medical robotics and surgery.’

ISO/IEC Robotics Standardization Meeting

The ISO/IEC robotics standardization meeting will take place July 17-28, 2017 in the Kiscelli u. facilities of Óbuda University, hosted by EKIK. The six working groups and the one study group will each have their 2-3-day-long meetings, partially overlapping. There are 80–1 00 international experts expected to arrive for the event, as accredited delegates of their national standardization bodies, accompanied by observers to the committees.

IROB @ Hamlyn Surgical Robot Challenge

‘Surgical Robot Challenge 2017 is an international competition


On May 4th 2017, our University celebrated the International EKIK day, where the ceremonial formation of the International Scientific and Industrial Advisory Boards took place, and besides, the center’s research partners presented cutting edge research results.


In order to pay tribute to Prof. Dr. Antal Bejczy physicist, chief researcher of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, affiliate professor of the Washington University in St. Louis, the outstanding character of international space research and robotics, Óbuda University Antal Bejczy Center for Intelligent Robotics (IROB) pronounced 16th of January the IROB International Bejczy Day.
