This is a list of participants at the VVV10 summer school - please add yourself (for inspiration, see VV09/VVV08/VVV07/VVV06).

 For editing, you can ask for your own username/password (email 
 paulfitz@liralab.it) or use the username "vvv10" and password
 "s*str*" with the first star replaced with "e" and the last star
 replaced with "i".

If you would like to, include in your profile a list of possible ideas for collaboration. See also Groups and experiments.

  I'm interested in Cognitive Science and Robotics. My goal at the VVV'10 Summer School is to implement 
  a proof-of-concept for an online event segmentation (and adaptive strong adaptation) framework (for more 
  details click here). The result should be the iCub following a ball (on a series of inclined planes,
  maybe on a pendulum) with its head - do any of you guys have a colored ball?

 I love robots, and during my PhD I have worked together with different ones: 
 started with medium-sized league RoboCup robots, then a big B21 robot with two 
 industry 6-DOF arms (Powercubes from Amtec), and finally have the pleasure of 
 working with the iCub and our self-made platform with Kuka LWR-4 arms and
 4-Fingered hands from the DLR:  TUM-Rosie in action
 
 I have concentrated in arm/hand movements for grasping. Lately working
 on grasping unmodeled objects, using a Mesa SR4k time of flight camera,
 and finger torque sensors to adjust the grasp.
 
 This is a video that we submitted to IROS2010 together with a paper:
 [link to youtube]
 
 Comparison of two approaches for grasp pose selection: kinematic mesh planner vs statistical
 [link to youtube]
 
 Want to see what our robot 'sees' when he grasps?
 [link to youtube]
 
 For the summer school, I am interested two-handed manipulation with the iCub. 
 One idea for the demo is to build stacks of Lego pieces. Please let me know if you
 would like to do something in this direction (Manipulation, reaching, tool use).

 Let's do some lego building!!
 A Costa Rican in germany working with robot manipulation. Mechanical models of objects. 
 Prediction of robot actions on objects. In last summer school we manage to put two lego
 pieces together teleoperated. In prior summers schools we implemented a potencial field
 base end-effector arm movement system. It can avoid obstacles and follow goal points and
 orientations. I'm pretty sure this will be a Summer School as "Tuanis!" as the last three.

  I am interested in developing a peripersonal space representation for humanoid robots. iCub will use this
  representation in object manipulation and avoidance of obstacles within the volume around it that is reachable
  with its arms. I am using a bottom-up approach     working with computer vision as well. I am from Mexico and
  look forward to make of this a great summer school.
