Mobile Robotics and artificial intelligence

How does a machine learn? How can a robot sense its environment? How can it process information? How can it localise itself and navigate autonomously ?

EPFL offers a summerschool in collaboration with two high-schools, Gymnasium Neufeld and Gymnasium Kirchenfeld in Bern.

Summer school for high school students, July 8-11 2019

During the 4 days of the summer school, the participants will explore the foundations of mobile robotics, while working on a Thymio-robot. Alternating theory sessions and practicals, Prof. F. Mondada and Dr A. Dame will address topics like sensors, motion, control, local navigation or neural networks.
