Iida_Fumiya_0_0Guest talk in the ShanghAI Lectures, 2011-11-17

Artificial ontogenetic development has been nicely demonstrated by many computer simulation studies in the past. There are, however, still a number of technical challenges in bringing it to the real world. In this presentation, I will introduce some potential solutions to this challenging problem, solutions that stem from soft robotics research. More specifically, we demonstrate how autonomous construction, autonomous body extension, and autonomous robot climbing locomotion can be achieved by exploiting unconventional soft material such as Hot Melt Adhesives.

Olivier MichelGuest talk in the ShanghAI Lectures, 2011-11-10

This presentation introduces Cyberbotics Ltd. with a little bit of history (where it came from), then it presents the Webots software that allows researchers and students to develop fast prototypes and simulations of mobile robots. Webots is being used in over than 875 universities and research centers world wide for both research and education. The end of the presentation includes a live demo of the new upcoming features in Webots: display of collision detection, interactive application of forces and torques to objects while the simulation is running.
