The school serves to consolidate and disseminate skills in software

research tend to be a complicated mish-mash of recently-developed
 
hardware.  We learn how to achieve modularity and code reuse in such
 
situations, maximizing the time spent actually doing research, and
 
facilitating collaboration across robot projects.

The school is structured as a series of hands-on practical laboratory

== Location ==
 
The school will be held in the newly-formed headquarters of the
 
Italian Institute of Technology, near Genoa, Italy.  The resources of
 
this institute, covering a range of humanoid technologies, will be
 
available to students. 
 
 
 
 
 
== Timetable ==
 
The days will be full.  We start at 9, and continue to
 
7 (breaks: morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea). We begin the school
 
in the morning of Monday, July 16 2007, and finish in the evening of
 
Wednesday, July 25 2007 (with people leaving during Thursday, July 26
 
2007).
 
 
 
== About RobotCub ==
 
RobotCub is a project to study cognition through robotics.  Along the
 
way, we are creating a completely open design for a humanoid robot -
 
open hardware, open software, open mind. Our hardware designs and
 
software are free and open source. The RobotCub consortium is composed
 
of 16 partners, 11 from Europe, 3 from Japan and 2 from the USA.  The
 
coordinator is the LIRA-Lab at the University of Genoa, Italy.

Viki: The Veni Vidi Vici Wiki

Welcome to the Wiki for the RobotCub Summer School 2007, Veni Vidi Vici 2007.

You can always get to this page by clicking the "VVV 07" link in the navigation box to the left.

Tasks

  • Task 1: Forming groups
    • See WorkingGroups for topic and group information.
    • Please prepare a one-slide/page self-introduction (feel free to use wiki, or powerpoint, whatever you are comfortable with).
  • Task 2: Do interesting stuff with a humanoid.

Roadmap

Here is some material that will help you understand the "big picture".

Software tools

Here are basic software tools we use at the school.

  • CMake, a cross-platform build system.
  • Doxygen, for extracting documentation from source code.
  • YARP, for communicating between modules and devices.
  • CVS, for storing source code and tracking changes.
  • Mediawiki, for quick and informal documentation.

Wiki help
