iCub diary

If you want to know what happened to the iCub during his first days in ISIR, you can read this page. The page is no longer maintained because now too many things happen :)

Note: a software/hardware log is kept on the desk close to the power supplies. This log/diary is used to keep track of updates (software, firmware, cluster config, ..), hardware/software issues and failures. If you notice something weird on iCub, or a failure happens, write down on it and then mail Serena immediately!

  • InnoRobo 2013. iCub videos were shown in GDR-Robotique's stand in Innorobo, Lyon, on March 2013.
  • AERES visit 2012. iCub was shown to the AERES committee with a live demo on November 2012.
  • Fete de la Science 2012. iCub performed for two days in October, during the Science festival organised by ISIR-UPMC
