=================================================================
1st CoTeSys-ROS Fall School on Cognition-enabled Mobile Manipulation

Munich, 1.-6. Novemember  2010
=================================================================

The first CoTeSys-ROS Fall School on Cognition-enabled Mobile
Manipulation will be held from 1.11.2010 until 6.11.2010 at Technische
Universität München in Munich, Germany. The school will be organized
by the Cluster of Excellence Cognition for Technical Systems,
Intelligent Autonomous Systems Group at TU Munich and Willow Garage.

The CoTeSys-ROS Fall School on Cognition-enabled Mobile Manipulation
will introduce the participants into the exciting research area of
autonomous mobile manipulation. Introductory lectures will be given by
world renowned experts in the fields of 2D/3D perception, learning,
reasoning and planning. The lectures will be complemented with
hands-on practical exercises using various modules of the open-source
ROS framework. Many of principle developers will be present and
available for support and interaction. The application domain for the
fall school will be everyday manipulation in human living
environments.

The school will have a strong hands-on character. The goal to be
pursued throughout the whole week will be to build a practical
application on the high-end robots (e.g. TUM-Rosie, PR2) that will
give robots the power to perceive and interpret typical scenes in
households, reason about them and infer the subsequent courses of
action, and to finally execute them in the form of mobile
manipulation.


Organizers: Michael Beetz, Gary Bradski, Dejan Pangercic, Radu Bogdan Rusu
