Tutorials

Please write here ideas for tutorials!

If you can give a tutorial, just propose it here, and say when you can give it. People can ask for tutorials!

iCub repository and build system

This tutorial will take place Wednesday morning at 10am.

Lorenzo will give a brief description of the iCub repository and build system.

Possible topics:

  • how to compile the iCub software
  • how to write code that uses the iCub libraries
  • how to contribute code in the repository

Interested?:

  • Kiril Kiryazov
  • Gauss Lee
  • Erick Swere
  • Paolo Tommasino
  • Onofrio Gigliotta
  • Francesca Stramandinoli
  • Naveen Kuppuswamy
  • Cristiano Alessandro
  • Jason Leake
  • Salomon

Writing iCub applications

Tired of typing yarp connect? Lorenzo will explain how to automate running applications with several modules.

Topics:

  • yarprun
  • iCub applications

Interested?:

  • Kiril Kiryazov
  • Gauss Lee
  • Erick Swere
  • Paolo Tommasino
  • Onofrio Gigliotta
  • Francesca Stramandinoli
  • Naveen Kuppuswamy
  • Cristiano Alessandro

Ros install, camera calibration, and detecting markers using artoolkit

Since camera calibration is a standard issue for computer vision, there are now some automated tools for the process. During this summer school, the lego-builders team will use the ones included in ROS.

Alexis can give a small tutorial on how to install ros and calibrate a camera using the utilities included. Afterwards, we will use the ar_pose package to detect the position of some markers. Estimated time: 30-60min depending on the ammount of questions.

When? Tuesday 20. at 10:00am

Resources:

  • ROS installation instructions
  • gscam : ROS Node for capturing images using gstreamer (works on many cameras). Documentation
  • camera_calibration: Part of the ROS image_pipeline. Tutorial
  • ar_pose: ROS Node for detecting AR-Toolkit markers. Documentation, examples, videos: here
  • patternMaker: If you need more Markers, get them from here

We will have a bridge pushing yarp images onto a ros topic to work on the robot.

Interested? write your name here:

  • Giacomo Spigler

iDyn

We've been developing a library for dynamics, which is the base for force, torque control and so on. Serena and Matteo can give a small overview of the library... anyone interested?

  • Jason Leake
  • Giacomo Spigler
  • Juan Victores
  • Paolo Tommasino
  • Alexis Maldonado
  • Cristiano Alessandro
  • Naveen Kuppuswamy
  • Salomon
  • Federico
  • Interesting! - Damien
  • Gauss Lee
  • Chris Larcombe

Ok we'll have a first introduction Tuesday 20th, in the afternoon (probably after coffee break). Since the library is quite big and there are a lot of things to say, it will probably be a very basic overview of the library, with code samples: we'll try to explain how the library works, hopefully. The code documentation is already available here, if you want to have a look at it! Have a look at the slides Media:idyn_tutorial_vvv10.pdf

Sorry we have to postpone the tutorial!! we'll tell you the date and time ASAP (not wednesday morning anyway!)
