Welcome to RCAR 2018


The 2018 IEEE International Conference on Real-time Computing and Robotics (IEEE RCAR 2018) will take place from August 1 to 5, 2018 in Kandima, Maldives. The objective of this conference is to provide a forum for researchers in robotics and real-time computing to share the latest results and explore the opportunity of research collaboration. With wide applications of robots in industry and services sectors, real-time computing plays one of the major roles in various topics in robotics including real-time control, human-robot interactions, sensor perception and fusion, robot intelligence, etc. The scope of RCAR 2018 covers research, development and applications in the dynamic and exciting areas of real-time computing and robotics. Kandima is located on the largest island in the Dhaalu Atoll about 45 minutes South-West of capital Male,  blessed with a 3 kilometer long white sand beach along the lagoon and thousands of palm trees. RCAR 2018 promises to be a great event for all participants, with excellent technical and social programs.
