Our involvement within the RoboCup Initiative
Together with Bonding, the IMA/ZLW & IFU Institute Cluster, RWTH Aachen University and the Department for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Robotics Group, FH Aachen we will host the Robotino Bonding Hackathon. Students will compete in small teams to develop the behavior of a robot operating in a simplified desaster scenario to develop effective behavior strategies to recover and prioritize items from the arena.
The event is organized by the Carologistics RoboCup Team.
Together with the IMA/ZLW & IFU Institute Cluster, RWTH Aachen University and the Department for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Robotics Group, FH Aachen we founded a new joint team to participate in the RoboCup Logistics League sponsored by Festo (LLSF)
As a preparation for RoboCup 2013 in Eindhoven, there will be a Hackathon from February 25th to March 1st. The goal of this Hackathon is to develop high-level programs for reasoning and behavior execution for the new tasks and challenges in the LLSF. integrate a robotics system based on the Robotino robot, that can complete certain logistics task in a restricted environment.
Robots that operate in human environments need to be able to detect and preferably also track humans around them by using all of their sensory capabilities.
The objective of this thesis is to develop and implement a system that allows a robot to detect and track person using several different modalities such as a laser range finder and a sound source localization.
