Program content

Academic content

This Summer School programme allows an in-depth and interactive insight to topics of future robotics while you learn about engineering, controlling and programming. The lectures introduce fundamental theoretical knowledge in robotics, and they are complemented by lab classes, in which students apply their acquired knowledge in practical projects.

You will solve classical problems in robotics, not only through simulations but also by discussing together how to programme stationary and mobile robots. You will learn about programming, path planning, trajectory planning, mapping and object manipulation, and you will receive information on industrial applications. Classical problems of robotics like localisation and navigation will be solved, and you will achieve an understanding of how to deal with insecurities.
