  This course is held in English.

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.

At Lehr- und Forschungsgebiet Informatik V the service robot Carl is installed. Furthermore, our team of soccer-robots for RoboCup's mid-size league is subject to ongoing research.

An announcement of the course can also be found in the course information system CAMPUS.

Seminar Procedure

Seminar talks will be held weekly during semester. Participation is bindingly 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.

Instructions on a good seminar talk

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.
