IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award to Davide Scaramuzza

Congratulations! Davide Scaramuzza has been awarded the IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award during the ICRA2024 conference. 

The career award IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award recognizes Davide Scaramuzza's outstanding contributions to technologies holding the promise of innovative applications. Specially two key contributions by Davide Scaramuzza and his team are awarded: agile visual navigation of micro drones and low-latency perception with event cameras. 

The IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award was established in 2001 to recognize outstanding early to mid-career contributions to innovative technological applications. It's one of the most prestigious awards by the IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. In 23 years of existence of the award, it's now the third time that it has been given to a robotics researcher. The two awards before went to robotics researchers at MIT and UC Berkeley.

Agile Visual Navigation of Micro Drones: In June 2022 the AI drone «Swift», designed by the Robotics and Perception Group, challenged and won against the two drone-racing world champions. The result marked the first time that an AI has beaten a human champion on a real physical sport designed for and by humans.

Low-Latency Perception with Event Cameras: The Robotics and Perception Group explores the potential of event cameras for quickly and safely detecting objects with the aim to perform well at high speeds on both drones and automotive systems.
