Robotics Laboratory

The laboratory provides motivated students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge on the development of autonomous agents in the context of RoboCup. This includes topics from the areas of Artificial Intelligence, image/sensor processing, real time systems and control engineering. This semester, the students have to develop a robot that is capable of fast navigation in an indoor and outdoor environment. The robot can either be a rescue robot (tracked or wheeled vehicle) or a humanoid robot.

Computer-Supported Modeling and Reasoning

This lecture is about using logic for program development and program analysis. Various logic systems (first-order logic, higher-order logic etc.) will be introduced, and it will be shown how proofs in these systems can be conducted both using paper and pencil and using the interactive theorem prover Isabelle. The general principles of an Isabelle-like theorem prover will be explained. It will be shown how an important part of mathematics and programming languages can be modeled in higher-order logic. The lecture will conclude with a verification case-study.
