Robotics Course Fall 2017 Project Videos online!

The Robotics Course of Fall 2017 is finished. In the second half of the project the students worked in small groups to realize 12 different projects. Two of these project were actually supervised by Prof. Andre Rosendo. The course webiste lists the projects and provides links to the project reports and the project pages.

Project topics range from 3D SLAM ( _1_, _2_, _3_, _4_, _5_), over maniupulation ( _6_, _7_) to mobile navigation (_7_, _8_, _9_, _10_, _11_). 

Most of the project pages also feature a video highlighting the work - go check them out!
