Day 10 (Wednesday)

There will be a special dinner on the 27th of July at Polpo Mario (here in Sestri Levante). Please sign up here.

Day 8 (Monday)

  • Ali Paikan PhD at IIT will speak about his work on the definition and management of iCub applications (about 11 am).

TODAY Day 6 (Saturday)

Day 5 (Friday)

  • Forming Working Groups: Groups 2011
  • VVV11_TimeTable#Friday
  • We'll have an invited speaker today (3pm): Nikolaus Vahrenkamp will be speaking about planning manipulation on humanoids. He's from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology working on the Armar III robot.
  • The VVV Traditional Starcraft is being planned check/suscribe here VVV11_Starcraft

Day 4 (Thursday)

  • VVV11_TimeTable#Thursday
  • Ugo gave the tutorials on Cartesian Interface and Gaze Interface (look the time-table for details)
  • Whatever task you'd like to code for the iCub, here at summer school or at your work place, please consider browsing the main and contrib documentation; therein you can find useful modules already implemented that might help you saving time and also avoiding reinventing the wheel :)

Day 3 (Wednesday)

  • VVV11_TimeTable#Wednesday
  • Application manager tutorial, 9:45am, Lorenzo (moved from yesterday) (added some notes for Linux)
  • Rest of Paul's tutorial will be squeezed in somewhere Even better, Lorenzo covered this.
  • Anyone taking pictures? Please post links!
  • Stanford students create Jedi robot! Could iCub beat him?

Day 2 (Tuesday)

  • Paul's YARP tutorial code available VVV11 TimeTable#Tuesday
  • Lorenzo's CMake tutorial, slides and code available VVV11 TimeTable#Tuesday
  • Afternoon shared with workshop on multisensory space perception: VVV11_TimeTable#Tuesday. May need some (temporary) reorganization of desks/chairs.
  • If anyone needs/wants to use dynamics (e.g. joint torques), I created a WholeBodyTorqueObserver module for the simulator, called simWholeBodyTorqueObserver. If you are not familiar with dynamics or force control, there's a nice wiki page on force control with extra information on the wholeBodyTorqueObserver, and one on the iDyn library used to compute dynamics. Let me know if you want to use it, or better test it! Serena
  • New research into the uncanny valley that makes human-like robots so creepy. -- MJC.

Day 1 (Monday)
