About NIFTi
NIFTi is about human-robot cooperation. About teams of robots and humans doing tasks together, interacting together to try and reach a shared goal. NIFTi looks at how the robot could bear the human in mind. Literally. When determining what to do or say next in human-robot interaction; when, and how. NIFTi puts the human factor into cognitive robots, and human-robot team interaction in particular.   Each year, NIFTi evaluates its systems together with several USAR organizations. Rescue personnel teams up with NIFTi robots to carry out realistic missions, in real-life training areas.

DR 8.3.5: Proceedings of the NIFTi summer school Yr3

DR8.3.5 describes the second NIFTi summer school, which was a joint event consisting of the 'Vision and Sports Summer School 2012', 5 days in August 27 - 31, 2012, and the 'Computer Vision for Mobile Robots Workshop 2012', 2 days in September 1 - 2, 2012. The goal of this NIFTi summer school was two-fold. First, provide theoretical knowledge on a expert level to the participants. During the first 5 days of the 'Vision and Sports Summer School 2012' students were given lectures on state-of-the-art computer vision techniques and pattern recognition by the invited experts. The given lectures were consistent with theory and methodology applicable in mobile robotics and hence suitable for the purpose of NIFTi. Second, give the participants an opportunity to test the theory and apply it in practice during the 2 days 'Computer Vision for Mobile Robots Workshop 2012'. Workshop participants were divided into teams and in a form of competition they worked intensively on robot control algorithm based on computer algorithm. The competition motivated participants to propose an original solution and experimentally evaluate it using the NIFTi platform. About 50 international students attended the lectures, 20 students then participated in the workshop.
