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.
