Dyson
Dr Mike Aldred

Dr Mike Aldred

Electronics Category Lead - Robotics and cordless at Dyson

Read more...

Mike read Computer Systems Engineering and then a PhD in Robotics at the University of Kent, Canterbury. He joined Dyson when the research group he was part of was hired to help Dyson develop a robotic vacuum cleaner. For eighteen years his primary focus has been robotics, starting as a software engineer on Dyson’s first robot vacuum the DC06 and progressing to managing the robotics team on Dyson 360 Eye™ robot vacuum. Mike has developed software for Dyson’s first bladeless fan the AMO1, as well as managing Dyson’s Electronics Research Group but his main focus has always been in ensuring that Dyson produces a world beating robotic vacuum cleaner. 360Eye utilises images from a 360° FOV camera to locate itself within its environment. Mike and his team developed bespoke algorithms for everything from exposure control to feature tracking to location recognition as part of the development cycle for the robot. Vision is the core enabler for the product and one of the keys to its success.

Dr Graham Deacon

Dr Graham Deacon

Robotics Research Team Leader, Ocado Technology

Read more...

Graham holds a B.Sc. in Engineering Science (Electrical) from Warwick University, an M.Eng. in Control Systems from Sheffield University, an M.A. in Philosophy of Mind from Hull University and a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from Edinburgh University. After lecturing in Robotics and Mechatronics at the University of Surrey he worked on bespoke applications of sensor-guided robots in the automotive industry, spent some time at the BBC Research Labs working on the synthesis of novel views from multiple concurrent images, was part of a team that developed a robot to assist neurosurgeons, managed a team maintaining a number plate recognition system, and was technical lead for a start-up company looking at using robots to fold sheet metal. Graham joined Ocado in September 2010 as the Robotics Research Team Leader and was given the task of getting a robotics research team together, and leading them to get robots to pack shopping. In addition to this he is Project Coordinator of the Horizon 2020 research project SecondHands, which is constructing a humanoid robot to assist maintenance technicians, and a Work Package leader on the Horizon 2020 research project Soma, which is looking at how best to use soft manipulators to develop manipulation strategies that exploit environmental constraints. He has also led a team that developed a robot programming environment for Raspberry Pi and Arduino hardware to encourage young people to get involved with software development. Ocado is the world’s largest on-line only grocer. The robotics research team at Ocado has been investigating the use of robot manipulators to pack shopping orders. Given the number, the diversity and the variability of the products that Ocado stocks the robots need to be sensor-guided. This talk will describe some of the work that the team has done using 3D point cloud cameras in order to pick and pack groceries with robots.
