Block course in the lecture-free period.

Second organizational meeting: 14.7.2023 13:00, Friedrich-Hirzebruch-Allee 6, B-IT Seminar Room 0.107

Start of the work period: 01.09.2023

Presentation: 29.09.2023

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 or the interpretation of their surroundings. The algorithms will focus on solving actual tasks on one of our robot platforms or smart edge sensors.

Various potential platforms for the lab.

Baxter     Smart Edge Sensor Device     UR10     Simulated UR5 with Schunk SIH Hand    

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.


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

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