IAP 2012 Activity

The iCub Humanoid Robot: A Hands-on Course
Lorenzo Rosasco, Tomaso Poggio, Giorgio Metta
Mon Jan 30 thru Fri Feb 3, 10-05:00am, 46-3015

Enrollment limited: advance sign up required (see contact below)
Limited to 25 participants.
Participants requested to attend all sessions (non-series)

THIS course is organized as a “code sprint” to pull together all the software needed to make a humanoid work - control and perception algorithms for its head, hand, arm, legs, and full body. It is organized as a peer-to-peer event: there are little formal lectures and lot of free programming time on a real humanoid robot. All participants are expected to be competent C/C++ programmers with an interest in working with others like them. The schedule will be organized flexibly around informal tutorials. The bulk of our time will be spent working together to integrate modules and implement interesting behaviors for humanoid robots
