- Safety in Electrical Engineering for a master´s degree (BEZM)
- The course cannot be taken simultaneously with:
- Humanoid robots (BE3M33HRO)
- Matěj Hoffmann (guarantor)
- Matěj Hoffmann (guarantor), Shubhan Parag Patni, Jakub Rozlivek, Lukáš Rustler, Petr Švarný
- Department of Cybernetics
The course focuses on “human-centered robotics”: humanoid robots and human-robot interaction. Motivated by the vision of robot companions in our homes, this course introduces humanoid robot technology and its specific challenges and opportunities: (i) walking and balancing; (ii) reaching, grasping, and bimanual coordination; and (iii) multimodal sensing - vision, touch, hearing, inertial sensing, etc. The second part of the course centers on human-robot interaction (HRI), which includes physical HRI (safety aspects, collaborative robots) and cognitive/social HRI - how to design robots and behaviors to be acceptable for people.
Ability to write computer programs in C++, Matlab, and Python.
Basic knowledge of robot kinematics in the span of bachelor course B3B33ROB1.
- Syllabus of lectures:
1. Humanoid robots I: introduction - why humanoids?
2. Humanoid robots II: walking and balancing.
3. Humanoid robots III: reaching, grasping and bi-manual coordination.
4. Multi-modal perception - vision, touch, hearing, inertial sensing.
5. Advanced grasping: from parallel grasps to robotic hands with multiple fingers.
