RoboHow first integration workshop -- a summary

We are happy to annouce that the first integration workshop of the project was very successfully. People engaged in mutual teaching activities, fruitful discussions on future research endavours and specified specific interfaces for collaboration.

As education activities several smaller workshops were conducted. The offered topics were an introduction of the ROS middleware, how the iTaSC framework and software can be used to specify desired robot motions, and best practices for collaboration of software projects. All of the respective teaching presentations are available online here.

Additionally, the consortium discussed several demonstration scenarios and their logistic and scientific consequences. As a result, it was decided to use the task of preparing popcorn with the PR2 as the overall theme for upcoming review meeting after year one of the project.

More details and the outcome of the partner discussions in the sub-groups can also be found on the workshop page.
