Lab Humanoid Robots (MA-INF 4214)

Humanoid robots are currently an active research platform. Since they have a human-like body plan they can act in environments designed for humans. Humanoid robots are able to, e.g., climb stairs, walk through cluttered environments, and open doors.

In this block course after the lecture period, the students will implement algorithms for perception, state estimation, environment representation, navigation, and motion planning techniques for humanoid robots. The students will work in small groups.
