International Spring School on Humanoid Soccer Robots 2014
Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran
10-14 June, 2014
The development of human liked robots, are able to do human being behavior, is a fundamental challenge for robotics and AI. Since the start of the humanoid league in 2002, there have been a lot of improvements in the hardware and software of human-like robots. Many successful approaches in the areas of active balancing, compliant control, complex motion planning, team play, and human robot interaction have been developed in recent years. The objective of the school is to give the students deep insights into the current state of the art for soccer playing humanoid robots. Amirkabir University of Technology is proud to host the 2014 Spring School in Humanoid Robots, a unique opportunity for everyone to learn the fundamentals and get involved in humanoid robots projects - a hot topic for both professional researchers as well as hobbyists. The spring school will highlight the most recent advances in humanoid robotics research. The program is based on three pillars: Theory, case studies and the practical exercises.
The spring school will highlight the most recent advances in humanoid robotics research. There will be sessions covering the basic theory and lab activities covering the practice of humanoid robotics. Lectures will be presented by well known researchers from North America, Europe, and Asia.
1- Theory: Many successful approaches in the areas of active balancing, compliant control, complex motion planning, biologically inspired approaches, team play, and human robot interaction.
2- Practical exercises: A soccer field and real humanoid soccer robots (Darwin-OP, Nao) will be provided for hands-on experience.
