Cognitive robotics is an active
research area at the border between artificial intelligence and
It investigates and tries to implement in technical systems mental functions, which are associated with intelligence.
This covers the perception of the environment, action planning, and learning. In this lab course, the students will implement algorithms for the control of our cognitive robots.
In this semester, the students will work on tasks of
SpaceBot Cup 2015.
Our team NimbRo Explorer is one of ten teams that are supported by the Federal Ministry of Economics. At the DLR SpaceBot Cup, mobile robots will explorer difficult terrain. Two objects must be found, transported to a basis object, and placed there. The robots must perform these taks mostly in an autonomous way, but are supervised and configured from a base station.
- The students will work in small groups.
- The lab is a good preparation for writing a Master thesis in the Autonomous Intelligent Systems group.
have the opportunity to join our DLR SpaceBot Cup team.
- Good programming skills in C/C++ or some other object-oriented programming language.
