Location & Time

140.200 Do-it Lab Fundamentals (1SH P, WS )

You have no prior experience with robots but would like to work with them?

If so, this hands-on project will enable you to build and control your own robot.

You will use Python to program intelligent navigation or even learning strategies. 

At the end of the practical project, we discuss your achievements and what you have learnt.

You can work on your own or build a team of up to three people at most. We provide a student lab with all-in-one-pcs prepared to code in Python on an ubuntu os.

The project is based on code examples, wiki pages and video tutorials for non-experts.

Learning objectives / qualifications

  • Students get a practical experience in working, programming and understanding autonomous robots in navigation and obstacle avoidance tasks.
  • Students understand and can apply classical robot path planning and navigation algorithms.
  • Students learn how to present their implementation, assumptions and achievements.

190.014 Integrated CPS Projekt (3SH SE, SS & WS)

You are interested in working with modern robots or want to understand how such machines ‘learn’?

If so, this project will enable you to dig into the fascinating world of robot learning.

The course provides a structured and well motivated overview over modern techniques and tools which enable the students to define learning problems in Cyber-Physical-Systems.

190.004 CPS Research Seminar II (2SH SE, WS)

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Elmar Rueckert is organizing this research seminar. Topics include research in AI, machine and deep learning, robotics, cyber-physical-systems and process informatics. 

Language:
English only

You are an undergraduate,  graduate, or doctoral student and want to learn more about AI?

This course will give you the opportunity to listen to research presentations of latest achievements. The target audience are non-experts. Thus no prior knowledge in AI is required.

To get the ECTS credits, you will select a research paper, read it and present it within the research seminar (10-15 min presentation). Instead of selecting a paper of our list, you can also suggest a paper. This suggestion has to be discussed with Univ.-Prof. Dr. Elmar Rueckert.

After the presentation, the paper is discussed for 10-15 min.

Further, external presenters that  are leading researchers in AI will be invited. External speakers will present their research in 30-45 min, followed by a 15 min discussion.
