Our RoboCupSoccer SPL, and RoboCup@Home DSPL teams will be leaving for the 2017 competition shortly, to be held in Nagoya Japan.
Our HSR (on loan from Toyota) has arrived!
We are pleased to have qualified for RoboCup@Home 2017, in the Domestic Standard Platform League (DSPL)!
The team will be travelling to Nagoya, Japan, and the competition runs from July 25th – July 30th.
Our Taste of Research students finished their 3 month scholarship this week. This year we had two students. Their projects were:
- Skeleton Tracking on the Baxter Robot
- Constructing a Mobile Domestic Robot
We’ve put together some videos summarising their work.
The Taste of Research program is a 3 month scholarship for undergraduate students in Engineering. Students undertake a research project in an existing team and discover what conducting research is like. The program runs over the summer break. For more information, and to apply in future programs, visit the Taste of Research page.
Back in December last year, Michael Thielscher gave a keynote presentation titled “Knowledge Representation for General Problem-Solving Robots” at the 10th Multi-Disciplinary International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence.
