From CMDash ’05 to CMRoboBits: Transitioning Multi-Agent Research with AIBOs to the Classroom

Paul E. Rybski and Manuela Veloso

The CORAL research group at Carnegie Mellon has researched teams of soccer robots using the Sony AIBO robots as the platform This paper describes an effort to create a course building upon research experience with AIBO robots. The course, titled CMRoboBits: Creating an Intelligent AIBO Robot, introduces students to all the concepts needed to create a complete intelligent robot. We focus on the areas of perception, cognition, and action, and use the Sony AIBO robots to help the students understand in depth the issues involved in developing such capabilities in a robot.
