Anthropomorphic robots are becoming popular - in the cinemas as well as in research. For obvious reasons: for humans the interaction with a system is much easier if it reacts at least similarily as he does. For the implementation of such a system, however, one has to answer some fundamental questions: How to capture and model the environment and the own body? How to interact with humans? How can learning by a human teacher be accomplished? Starting with these questions, the field of humanoid robotics will be observed and discussed from different points of view.
The seminar is inteded as an accompanying course to the following lectures:
- Introduction to Robotics (Robotics I)
- Programming of Robots (Robotics II)
- Sensors in Robotics (Robotics III)
- Machine Learning
The seminar is intended for students of computer science, electronic engineering, mechanical engineering as well as all everyone interested in robotics.
Possible topics will be presented during the first meeting on October 22th. However, participants are also welcome to propose their own topics. In this case, please contact Stefan Ulbrich at least a week before the first meeting.
The seminar for the winter term 2012/13 will start on monday October 22th. The time and place will be announced later on this homepage. There will be only a limited number of participants. Please send an email to Stefan Ulbrich for registration.
