Cognitive Robotics (Seminar, SS 2004)
|Instructor:||Prof. Gerhard Lakemeyer, Ph.D.|
Dr. Vazha Amiranashvili
Over the past four decades, robotic research developed from manipulator control in manufacturing plants to today's mobile robots. Designing algorithms to enable mobile robots to function autonomously in unstructured, dynamic and uncertain environments is the key challenge to robotic research. Autonomous robots successfully operate in application areas as Service Robotics, unmanned military vehicles, and even Robotic Soccer as in RoboCup. Moreover, it is desired that the autonomous robots behave in an intelligent way beeing able to analyze the environment percepted by the sensors and select appropriate actions in order to fulfill a given task.
At Knowledge-based Systems Group the service robot Carl is installed. Furthermore, our team of soccer-robots for RoboCup's mid-size league is subject to ongoing research.
Preliminary DiscussionWe will distribute the seminar topics to the attendees.

12 students are admitted to the seminar. Some of the topics can
count for a credit in theory.
Seminar talks will be held weekly during semester. Participation is binding for achieving the credit. The preparation of the talks and the written workout should not be a translation or renarration of the given papers. The given literature is meant to be a starting point for own literature investigation on the topic. The literature should then be discussed with the instructor.
No later than 3 weeks before the talk the seminarist should hand in a preliminary workout and 1 week before the talk the final version of the transparencies must be given to the respective seminar instructor.
Renate Eschenbach from our library offers guided tours on how to find
literature in the library and how to prepare a seminar.
Interested student should enlist for a tour in the preliminary discussion.
