Our Humanoid Robots
We have a small team of humanoid soccer bots (“Aldebaran Nao”). See the RoboCup page.
Our Sumo Bots
A number of standard FischerTechnik ROBO Mobile Set robots serve for the purpose of playing Robot Sumo. In this game, robots catch each other. The localization task is performed using a camera mounted to the ceiling which provides a bird’s eye view of the playground. The control of the robot is very similar to that in FISH-I.

We use this robots for our courses on robotics; see “Praktikum Robotik und Visuelle Sensorik” or “Praktikum Visual Computing” (WS08/09) at the VSI pages on teaching.

Our Orange Robot
The orange robot is actually a simulated robot equipped with a wide-angle omnidirectional camera. The simulation takes place in Blender, yielding photo-realistic images of the robot’s view inside a virtual office environment.

Orange robot is used for experiments at VSI and also for teaching! See “Praktikum Visual Computing” (WS07/08) at the VSI pages on teaching.

CrustCrawler Robotics Robotic Arm

We use a CrustCrawler Robotics AX-12+ Smart Robotic Arm for experiments at VSI and also for teaching! See “Praktikum Visual Computing” at the VSI pages on teaching.

A c++ library for controlling this robotic arm can be found here: dynApi – Robotis Dynamixel c++ progamming api.

Lynxmotion Robotic Arm

Silverlit Picooz Helicopter

We are trying to control the helicopters from a PC. To do this, the IR remote control of the helicopter is replaced by a AT90USBKEY microcontroller board, connected to IR LEDs. Our next goal is to track the position of the helicopter with a visual sensor in order to have a complete feedback loop for PC control.

More information can be found at our Helicontrol Project Overview.
