The proceedings contain 37 papers. The special focus in this conference is on Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems. The topics include: Tabu temporal difference learning for robot path planning in uncertain environments; modelling and predicting rhythmic flow patterns in dynamic environments; extending deep neural network trail navigation for unmanned aerial vehicle operation within the forest canopy; virtual environment for training autonomous vehicles; comparing model-based and data-driven controllers for an autonomous vehicle task; an improved robot path planning model using cellular automata; Colias IV: The affordable micro robot platform with bio-inspired vision; resQbot: A mobile rescue robot with immersive teleperception for casualty extraction; seeing the unseen: Locating objects from reflections; SPGS: A new method for autonomous 3D reconstruction of unknown objects by an industrial robot; the effect of pose on the distribution of edge gradients in omnidirectional images; learning to listen to your ego-(motion): Metric motion estimation from auditory signals; piloting scenarios for children with autism to learn about visual perspective taking; user detection, tracking and recognition in robot assistive care scenarios; Hypertonic saline solution for signal transmission and steering in MRI-guided intravascular catheterisation; a conceptual exoskeleton shoulder design for the assistance of upper limb movement; a hormone arbitration system for energy efficient foraging in robot swarms; a bio-inspired aggregation with robot swarm using real and simulated mobile robots; SO-MRS: A multi-robot system architecture based on the SOA paradigm and ontology; ROS integration for miniature mobile robots; a modified computed torque control approach for a master-slave robot manipulator system.
