The Robotlab

Welcome at the Robotlab website of the department of Data-science and Knowledge Engineering (DKE) of Maastricht University (UM). The Robotlab was established to offer  students the possibility to apply the knowledge they gained in  their study in the area of robotics. The Robotlab has since since  2009 four humanoid Nao robots. Beside the Naos the lab has  several wheel-based robots such as the Amigobots.

Research foci

Some examples of research topics for which the Nao robots are  used:

  • Controlling and learning of robot motion for different tasks
  • Human-robot interaction
  • Robot-vision
  • Autonomous behavior
  • Group behavior
  • Robot soccer

Dutch Nao Team

In Decempber 2013, DKE has joint the Dutch Nao Team (DNT). The DNT is our national Nao soccer team, which paticipates in the Robocup SPL competition. The DNT is realized by an enthousiastic group of students from the University of Amsterdam, Delft University of Technology and Maastricht University.
