IROS 2014 Tutorial on
Teaching Robotics with a Simulator
September 14 2014, Chicago


This tutorial is organized around a cross-platform robot development
and simulation environment that can be installed in five minutes and
that allows students to write control, navigation, vision or
manipulation algorithms in a hundred lines of Matlab or Python
code. The tutorial relies on the V-REP robot simulator, and on the
Matlab Robotics Toolbox (RTB). The key feature of this combination is
its ease of use – both tools are trivial to install. The tutorial is
intended for teachers and students. Students will install the
simulation environment on their laptop and learn everything they need
to know to start implementing and testing robot algorithms. Teachers
will return home with a ready-to-use recipe for organizing a
master-level robotics project.

We welcome the submission of abstracts (200 words) about one's
experience in teaching or learning robotics with a simulator, or in
doing research with a simulator. In particular, we will welcome
presentations by students relating a project implemented with RTB or
V-REP, and presentations by teachers relating their experience in
teaching with a simulator. Selected authors will present their ideas
to the participants during the tutorial.

Format: 200 words
Submission deadline: August 15, 2014
Notification of acceptance: August 18, 2014

Abstracts should be sent via email to Renaud Detry (see
