Our work with Jennifer, detailed in the previous post, has won first place in the  2015 DARwIn-OP Humanoid Application Challenge at ICRA-2015 in Seattle  (ICRA is the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society's flagship conference ).  Congratulations to everyone in the lab who has worked on this, and to Jacky Baltes, Chris Iverach-Brereton, and Brittany Postnikoff, who went to the conference to present this work!


 

We have a Gallery of images of this work, as well as a selection of videos. We also have a summary video of this work available on YouTube.

We came in third in the world in teen-size humanoids at RoboCup-2016, along with our partner, Amirkabir University of Technology, and first place in the Technical Challenge.  This is our strongest showing ever in larger humanoids.

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.
