We are currently exhibiting our work with the Citizen Microrobots at the AAAI conference in Vancouver. We will be running demonstrations of the Pac Man system we ran at RoboCup (see the article below), along with other demonstrations of applications suitable for undergraduate robotics education. This demonstration uses entirely our own software, including using Ergo for vision.

The hats used to identify the robots are a little larger than the Citizen microrobots, but the low resolution of the the firewire cam we brought with us made a larger hat size necessary.

A gallery and videos can be found in the appropriate section of the website, and a paper presented at the robotics workshop here is in the publications section.

Update: we won a technical merit award from AAAI for this work

We came in third in the world in teen-size humanoids at RoboCup-2017, along with our partner, Amirkabir University of Technology, and took third place in the Technical Challenge!

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.
