Robotics Spectacular at XinCheJian!

October 16th, 2012 § 0 comments

Bring out your robots! We will have an evening dedicated to Robotics talks next Wednesday evening at XinCheJian (1035 Changle Rd, 2nd floor, Xuhui District, Shanghai, CHINA, 200031) from 19h00 to 21h00. Talks will be between 8 and 20 minutes each. You have a robot but no presentation? Feel free to demo it before and after the talks!

Prof. Dr. Rolf Pfeifer from the AI Lab at the University of Zurich will be talking about his work in robotics (such as Roboy) in a talk entitled “Embodied Intelligence”. Dr Pfeifer is the worldwide leader on how well designed intelligent bodies can dramatically reduce non-linear control complexity (“embodiment”) and the Deputy Director of the NCCR (National Competence Center for Research in Robotics) in Switzerland.

Dr Ricky Ye (叶琛) and Rockets Xia (夏青) from DFRobot will bring and present a set of their commercial robots and how they’re approaching development of robots with OpenSource and OpenHardware.

Spencer Featherstone and Edward Jiang (姜昊) will give an update on XinCheJian Swarm Robots. Our swarm robots placed second at the AFRON competition, just between Harvard and MIT!

Rodolfo “Rudy” Cossovich will show off making robots with Multiplo, the robot building system. Rudy has just recently successfully completed a round of fundraising on Kickstarter for Multiplo.

Announcement by Ricky Ng-Adam (伍思力), translated to Chinese by Amaca Wang, revision by Min Lin Hsieh. Robot drawing by Kevin Chen.
