IDSIA Robotics Laboratory
IDSIA Robotics Lab |
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.

|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.

More are coming soon.
We have a bunch of different robots. The following images will give you an overview. Of course, we have more than one robot of each type.
Pioneer with SICK LRF
Pioneer with Katana
Another FIRA robot
E-Puck with ground sensor
E-Puck with IR R&B module
Additionally, we have various sensors (cameras, laser range finders, inertial measurement unit, and so on) currently not mounted on robot bases.
