The Robotics teams of the CEA LIST (France) are organizing some Tech days for our research partners. Since we are (heavily) using Orocos (mainly RTT, OCL) we thought that the Orocos community might be interested as well.
The proposed agenda is:
- 15th March 2012: Robotics and Virtual Reality presentation and demonstrations
- Virtual reality: Realtime physics simulation using XDE, haptic interaction, virtual-human tracking and interaction.
- Robotics: Realtime master/slave coupling w/ force feedback on real and simulated setups; cobotics demonstrations and exoskeleton teleoperation of a Staubli RX.
- 16th March 2012: Workshop on the XDE framework ( www.xde.fr ). This framework is heavily based on the Orocos framework and is dedicated (but not restricted) to realtime physics simulation, virtual reality applications and virtual-human interactions (from both robotic whole-body-control, and interactive point of view). We will also present and discuss some of our RTT related developments such as Python integrations, auto C++ bindings, etc.
Some additional information about the labs can be found at:
If you are interested, please let me know soon so we can take care of the administrative details (and obviously because of the limited meeting capacity or our labs).
