In this practical course, a is worked on alone or in small teams with up to 3 students. Questions of humanoid robotics are dealt with, such as semantic scene interpretation, active perception, planning of grasping and manipulation tasks, action representation with motion primitives, and programming by demonstration.

The project work (alone or in groups) is performed largely independently but supported by scientific staff of the H2T. At the end of the practical course, the work has to be documented and presented in a scientific talk.

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will be able to independently understand, structure, analyze, and solve a complex humanoid robotics problem using existing programming skills, alone or in a small team.
  • Students can convey complex technical content in a presentation.


  • Very good programming skills in at least one high-level programming language are strongly recommended.
  • Attendance of the lectures Robotics 1, Robotics 2, Robotics 3, as well as the robotics practical course are recommended.
  • Project-specific recommendations (knowledge of C++, Python, ...) will be announced in the individual project descriptions
