Robo.DU Day 2017
Show details
Robo.DU Day is an event with public talks about robotics, Arduino technology, Raspberry Pi and 3D Printers. All visitors can participate in various workshops: LEGO's "Renewable Energy Sources", LEGO gaming, Arduino and Raspberry Pi. There will also be demonstration of humanoid robots, RoboAlkar, drones and many more.

Robo.DU Day is planned as a day of exchange of knowledge and skills among students and young people of the City and the County. The idea of a well-conceived STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is associated with this event. Vicko Prkačin will talk about his adventure of making a special modular robot. Nikša Vlahušić will present how Arduino technology can been used as a fun and as serious tool for complex tasks. Secretary of the Croatian Robotic Alliance - Željko Krnjajić, will tell all about the successes of Croatian robotic teams, but also about his greatest project - to create and manage a humanoid robot! STEMI will present itself through an incredible story of their success!

Creating a robotic arm
Show details
Europe is celebrating roboticists with European Robotics Week and here in CTK decided to join in on the celebration with two DIY workshops of our own.

Thanks to our talented “Be full of knowledge” crew, who prepared two workshops on creating a robotic arm, one for elementary school children and one for youth aged 15 to 30, young people can become roboticists. This time, to make it more interesting, we will be creating robotic arms in a very special way – without electricity!

Target audience
Youth (15 – 30 years old)

robotics@FER: University of Zagreb Fair
Show details
Robotics research at UNIZG-FER is conducted within three laboratories: Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems - LARICS (larics.rasip.fer.hr), Laboratory for Autonomous Systems and Mobile Robots - LAMOR (lamor.fer.hr) and Laboratory for Underwater Systems and Technologies - LABUST (labust.fer.hr). These laboratories are founders of Centre of Research Excellence for Advanced Cooperative Systems - ACROSS (across.fer.hr). These groups are currently active in more than 20 scientific international and national projects with the topic of robotics in different area. They are also tightly collaborating with companies from all around the world. Special attention is devoted to knowledge transfer to students at the undergraduate, graduate and PhD level. Starting with elementary
robotics, all the way to advanced control, navigation, and estimation, robotics students at UNIZG-FER have the opportunity to adopt state of the art robotics knowledge and apply it on a large number of robotic platforms that are available in the laboratories.

Target audience
Future students

A Gentle Introduction to SLAM
Show details
"A Gentle Introduction to SLAM - Path to Robot Autonomy" is part of "Robotics & AI Club" series. "Robotics & AI Club" is a new project of Osijek Software City association, which has the primary goal of deepening and popularizing fundamental knowledge, skills, and trends in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence, making everyone ready for the robotic future ahead.

What do the NASA rover, Google Car, and Roomba all have in common?
Each performs their duties autonomously - perceiving their environment and acting based on those observations without (or with minimal) human intervention.

The ability of a device to perform autonomously is the necessary stepping stone towards the broad integration of robotic systems into our everyday lives. Regardless of whether we are talking about robots engaged in housecleaning or the exploration of new planets - at its core, autonomy is made up of the same components - one of these common components is SLAM. SLAM is a process whereby a robot simultaneously maps its environment while keeping track of its location within that environment. It is the foundation upon which robot autonomy is built and is one of the most challenging areas to grasp.

Dario Ljubić will present past and current thought on the topic of SLAM and its likely role in the future of robotics. He is a Robotics Engineer at Gideon Brothers and holds a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering. His talk, scheduled for 7 December at 19h will surely inspire anyone with an interest in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence - whether you are an experienced robotics engineer or a non-technical fan of the field.

Target audience
The target audience is everyone who is interested in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence, robotics enthusiasts, student, scientists, or just wants to be informed of the future that is coming.
