Workshop: November 18, 2014

Humanoid robots are one of the most challenging subjects in robotics.
Software architectures and design methodologies have a critical impact
on the development effort and quality of robot control systems.

On human size biped robots many components must coexist and interact
with each other to implement the desired skills. Teams of people must
work in an organized manner, working incrementally to achieve results.

How to design such systems is an important question of research in order
to make progress in robotics and reduce the amount of time
spent in software development, integration and maintenance.

There are several methodologies and frameworks that help facing this
problem. The aim of this workshop if to bring together the relevant
experts in the field that work on a daily basis with humanoid robots
in order to share the experiences learned through the years,
identify common problems and take a step towards a standard way
to solve them.

Each of the invited speakers has their own robotic platform and
framework, giving the opportunity for an active discussion of
the proposed topic.

The workshop will also include a live demonstration of the latest
capabilities of PAL Robotics REEM-C
