||This work group focusses on perception, reasoning, prediction, and motor action in a simple closed-loop system. Use your own computing hardware, or use our neuromorphic SpiNNaker or GPU setup.
We provide small mobile robots, equipped with high-resolution event camera and some additional sensors. We setup a soft-ball on a string as swinging pendulum (obstacle). Your robot shall go by the pendulum without getting hit. We expect your robot brain will need to understand how the pendulum swings, and predict into the (near) future for a safe pass-by. Maybe you find a better solution?
It's all about perception, reasoning, prediction and motor action in closed-loop systems :)
We hope to see you!
