Tools for Data Driven Research and Development in RoboCup

An empirical scientific discipline requires a set of methods and practices for evaluation and comparison of proposed models and solutions. RoboCup provides a unique common test scenario for robotics, but its potential is, by far, not realized. Conducting games incurs high cost in terms of effort, time, and money. The scientific outcome, however, is quite limited and often not very conclusive. In most cases only the final score of the games provides feedback about the performance of a team. In this project we develop a toolbox (a set of tools) to support collection, organization and...

Humanoider Roboter Gretchen

Angelehnt an biologische Systeme gewinnt die Forschung an verkörperter Künstlicher Intelligenz (Embodied AI) zunehmend an Signifikanz. Biologische Systeme sind inhärent dezentral aufgebaut wobei einzelne Teile des Körpers über eigene Intelligenz verfügen. Intelligentes Verhalten entsteht erst dann aus dem Zusammenspiel einzelner Komponenten und der Interaktion mit der Umgebung. Daher ist der Körper ein unerlässlicher Teil bei der Forschung nach Intelligenz. Besonders interessant sind dabei die humanoiden Roboter, welche immer noch schwer zugänglich, mit hohen Kosten verbunden und oft von...
