When Joseph Engelberger, an industrial robotics pioneer, once remarked "I can't define a robot, but I know one when I see one” it was patent how heterogeneous is the robotics matter. In this summer course we focus in the main task that are needed when we work on mobile robotics (navigation, localization, cognitive process) and how can be improved using Soft Computing techniques. Summer course begins with an introduction to robotics and Soft Computing, and then we will progress in the study of more complex algorithms and systems like Simultaneous Localization And Mapping and swarm robotics. Finally, at each phase of the course, we will do some practical works with robotics platforms (simulators and real robots).
