As part of COMP 4060, our students just finished implementing a Mixed Reality Pac Man application using the mixed reality platform we have developed.

The robots are 2" infrared toy tanks, running on a 40" lcd and controlling the action of the game characters in the virtual world of Pac Man. Vision is provided by Ergo. Video of this and other mixed-reality applications are in the Comp 4060 video directory, a paper on this approach is in the publications section for 2007, and previous papers describe Ergo. Ergo is also downloadable from this website.

We will be hosting RoboCup 2018 in Montreal, the first time RoboCup has come to Canada!  Jacky Baltes will be the General Chair of the event.

The Autonomous Agents Laboratory is one of the research laboratories within the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba, and is directed by Dr. John Anderson and Dr. Jacky Baltes. The goal of our work is the improvement of technology surrounding hardware and software agents as well as the development of applications employing these technologies. We are especially interested in cooperation in multi-agent settings, and the infrastructure necessary to support this and other forms of social interaction in intelligent systems.
