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.

The ShanghAI Lectures are a videoconference-based lecture series on Embodied Intelligence, run and organized by Rolf Pfeifer (from 2009 till 2012), Fabio Bonsignorio (since 2013), and me with partners around the world.

Olivier Michel is the founder and CEO of Cyberbotics Ltd. This company develops the Webots software used in the ShanghAI lectures. Webots is a fast prototyping and simulation software for mobile robots. More information about it can be found here: http://www.cyberbotics.com.

The ShanghAI Lectures have brought us a treasure trove of guest lectures by experts in robotics. You can find the whole series from 2012 here. Now, we’re bringing you the guest lectures you haven’t yet seen from previous years, starting with the first lectures from 2009 and releasing a new guest lecture every Thursday until all the series are complete. Enjoy!
