Abstract: Schülerprojekte (Kurzbeschreibung)
Project 21: Man-Machine Interaction
Research will be conducted based on experiments in the field of swarm robotics and brain research. The focus lies on communication between man and machine, interaction of brain and mind, and autonomy and automation. These topics will be investigated separately and the result will be merged on an interdisciplinary basis. One concrete goal is the installation of a swarm robotic arena in the school.
