Cognitive robotics is an active research area at the border between artificial intelligence and robotics. 

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 block course, the students will implement algorithms for the control of our cognitive robots.
This time, the lab will focus on the tasks specified for the European Robotics Challenges. 

Our team participates in all three challenges:

The students will work in small groups.

The lab is a good preparation for writing a Master's thesis in the Autonomous Intelligent Systems group.

Active participants will have the opportunity to join our RoboCup team NimbRo.


- Good programming skills in C/C++ or some other object-oriented programming language.

- Knowledge in robotics, artificial intelligence, or machine learning is helpful.
