Courses

The iCub team is involved in training activities on the use of the iCub robots and more in general techniques for software programming of humanoid robots. The main event we organize is the VVV school, which started in 2006, and was held for 12 editions. The school is a mix of frontal teaching, hands-on sessions and invited talks.

Students build practical programming skills thanks to extensive training sessions on software simulators and real humanoid robotic platforms, with two iCub humanoid robots available for the students equipped with a cluster of computers and GPUs in a dedicated LAN.

Our last school has been held in Santa Margherita Ligure in 2018
