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, e.g. the mobile manipulation
robot Mario or our autonomous MAVs which won MBZIRC
2017 to solve MBZIRC
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 MBZIRC 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.
