reAdopt - ROS-enabled autonomous driving for passenger transportation

02.12.2021 -
In the recently started teaching project reAdopt, students from the faculties of computer science, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering work together with scientists from ifak e.V. and the OvGU to implement concepts of autonomous driving on a real vehicle. Based on an EasyMile EZ10 shuttle bus, the students will use the open robot framework ROS to run the shuttle autonomously on the Galileo test field in Magdeburg. Under the guidance of the scientists, the students have to solve problems such as sensor fusion of various vehicle sensors and time-critical control of the drive system. The implementation of a graphical user interface is also one of the project tasks. The aim of the project is to introduce students to the topic of autonomous driving practically and to extend related topics of courses given at the university in this field. Interested students who are looking for a research project or a thesis are welcome to contact Dr. Christoph Steup from OvGU or Philipp Hörnlein from ifak.

New Blog for CIcker Season 1 Project

01.03.2021 -

We are starting a blog about our new Robotic Game AI platform "CIcker". In this blog, we will regularly post about this project, which we call it CIcker Season 1. 

The goal of this project is to let AI play against a human player. This project is initiated by three students who visited the robotic activities at SwarmLab and visited the course Computational Intelligence in Games

This is called Season 1, since in this season we will have AI against human. In Season 2, we aim to have AI against AI.

Keynote Talk at IJCCI 2020


On Wednesday 4th November, Sanaz gave a keynote talk at the 12th International Joint Conference on Computational Intelligence (IJCCI) 2020.

Title: Collective and Individual Decision-Making in Swarm Robotics


Abstract: Autonomous systems are becoming more and more ubiquitous and their influence on our lives grows every day. In the last years, computational intelligence methods have – more than ever - extensively contributed to the latest scientific breakthrough in developing such intelligent systems. Nevertheless, one major challenge concerns the real-time reactions of autonomous systems to the unknown dynamics in their environments which is considered to be among the grand challenges in this area. This talk is about multi-objective decision making algorithms in Swarm Robotics. It will give an overview about the design issues and the challenges in real-time applications in robotics and computer games. In most of such applications, the decision makers (robots or agents) must find and select one possible optimal solution in a very limited time frame. This is very challenging, when the environment dynamically changes as the decision maker needs to re-optimize and decide on the fly. Multi-objective decision making algorithms in dynamically changing environments will be addressed and applications in Swarm Robotics will be presented. The results on individual and collective decision making are represented.
