IDSIA Robotics Laboratory

Introduction

The IDSIA robotics lab was founded in 2007. It is a laboratory to apply artificial intelligence methods to various types of real robots: mobile robots, manipulating robots, and humanoid robots. We have demonstrated our competence in applied machine learning and swarm itelligence in miscellaneous projects, e.g. Swarmanoid, IM-CLeVeR.

Here is a nice video showing what is going on in our lab.

Location


View IDSIA in a larger map
Galleria 1, 2nd floor, 6928 Manno. Shortest and simplest way: Staircase D (backside of Galleria 1). SUPSI DTI and DSAN is written on the entrance door on the second floor. Official way: Main entrance, but it is a maze challenge to find the lab. Here is a larger map with place marks on all IDSIA related entrances in Galleria 1. Click on one place mark to read more about an entrance.
