Catalogue data

AbstractThe category of "Laboratory Courses, Projects, Seminars" includes courses and laboratories in various formats designed to impart practical knowledge and skills. Moreover, these classes encourage independent experimentation and design, allow for explorative learning and teach the methodology of project work.
ObjectiveVision and Control in RoboCup is jointly offered by Prof. John Lygeros (IFA) and Prof. Luc Van Gool (CVL).

RoboCup is a tournament where teams of autonomous robots compete in soccer matches against each other. The ETH team NomadZ plays in the standard platform league with the humanoid NAO robot, where the focus lies on developing robust and efficient algorithms for vision, control and behavior. In this course, the basic challenges we encounter in RoboCup are presented and approached in practical exercises using MATLAB and Python. The topics cover visual localization, deep learning for object detection and reinforcement learning for control.

The course is offered to students of the 5th semester.
