LernzielProgramming Robots – Sensors- Humanoid Robot.

NAO robots from Softbank are the leading humanoid robot being used in research and education worldwide. Robotics is the fastest growing and most advanced technology used in education and research. The main goal of this course is to introduce and allowing the students to learn how to program an NAO humanoid robot to make him walk, talking, watching objects understanding the human, and reacting to external input. The Nao Robots used in this course are equipped with many sensors: Tactile Sensors, Ultrasonic sensors, A Gyro, An Accelerometer, Force Sensors, Infrared sensors, 2 HD Cameras, 4 Microphones, and high accuracy digital encoders on each joint. It has two processors on board: an Intel Atom 1.6Ghz (The main computer includes SSD drive, WiFi, Bluetooth, and wired network) and an additional ARM-9 processor in its chest.
The course will introduce the software package and the full SDK and API. The students will learn how to program ( mainly in C and Phyton) the robot to access the full functionality. To improve the hands-on skills of students the course will end with a 5 weeks project where the students in the group will compete in a small soccer game where the robots will play the game following and kicking a red ball. It is not requested any previous knowledge but programming skills are a plus.
The course will be taught in English and organized by the new Project-based Learning center.
