Welcome to the AMiRE 2011 Website

The 6th International Symposium on Autonomous Minirobots for Research and Edutainment (AMiRE) is to be held on 23-25 May 2011 at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research, University of Bielefeld, Germany, under the patronage of the Centre of Excellence in Cognitive Interaction Technology. The leading theme of the AMiRE series of symposia is that small and inexpensive research, educational and entertainment robots have been and continue to be an important driving force for advancing autonomous robot technology. Thanks to the advances in microelectronic technology such as high performance and low power microprocessors, FPGAs, wireless communications and low cost CMOS cameras, robots are capable of serving as test beds for animal behaviour cognitive research, prototypes of large robotics systems such as service or field robots, and as general research tools for autonomous robotics.

Efficient use of energy is an ongoing design goal for all types of mobile devices, and even more so in autonomous robots where available energy is a primary limiting factor to robot capabilities. Therefore achieving more with less energy is highly relevant.

Within this context AMiRE 2011 welcomes contributions on the fundamentals of minirobotic science and design, and application of minirobots in research, education and entertainment.
