Virtual Robotics

July 2013 – November 2013
A virtual robotic environment for postgraduate courses on robotics.

People Involved:
Jan Kruse – Researcher
Loulin Huang – Project leader, School of Engineering
Charles Walker – Supervisor
Peter Maclaren – Supervisor

The project aims to create a learning and teaching environment under the Learning and Teaching Development Fund at AUT University. It utilises existing robotic hardware and software to create a virtual (simulated) and physical environment for postgraduate students to explore industrial robotics from an engineering as well as artistic, creative standpoint.

Research Publications:
A paper on the development of the project is currently in progress. Subsequent papers are anticipated.
