The demonstrator and imitator robots

This post describe another project that I have assigned to our students at Aalesund University College while teaching mechatronics. In particular, this project addresses the problem of body mapping in robotic imitation where the demonstrator and imitator robots may not share the same embodiment (degrees of freedom, body morphology, constraints and so on).

Lego Mindstorms student projects at Aalesund University College

I want to share some student projects from my first year teaching Mechatronics at Aalesund University College. In order to motivate the students, at the beginning of the course, Professor Houxiang Zhang and I decide to use several sets of Lego Mindstorms.

Teaching mechatronics at Aalesund University College is fun!

Teaching is amazing! I like teaching because I strongly believe that sharing enthusiasm for my research topics is important. I have to admit that as a teacher I don’t accept failure. I try every angle and every strategy to help students learn and succeed. I love teaching because it make me feel better every day that I come home from my job; it almost makes me feel guilty that I get paid for this! Here is a photo taken in our Mechatronics Lab in the Spring 2012 (Mechatronics course).
