The DREAM II(TM) (School Set) programmable robotic kit was released by ROBOTIS(R) in Spring 2018 for the USA market with a cost around $220 US. It is recommended for users at age 8 or older. It comes with instructions to build 23 programmable robot examples and it can be interfaced with two free popular programming tools: 1) The first interface uses a ROBOTIS tool called TASK(TM) which can generate machine code that runs on the robot controller CM-150 allowing it to interact with its built-in NIR sensors and miniature speaker, along with a variety of external actuators and sensors. These TASK codes can be developed on MS Windows(R) platforms or on iOS(R) and Android(R) mobile devices, and they can be deployed via USB (wired) or Bluetooth(R). 2) The second interface uses the Off-Line version of MIT's SCRATCH(R) 2 software to combine the power and multimedia services of a Windows PC with a direct control of the robot controller CM-150 via USB (wired) or Bluetooth and a helper application named R]SCRATCH, provided by ROBOTIS. This book is for you if you are a young robotics enthusiast looking at achieving on your own a firm foundation in robotics design and programming, or if you are an adult investigating the possible use of the DREAM II School Set to help children learn about robotics programming and design. This book will show that this kit can be quite a versatile tool to introduce students from 8 to 12 years old to fundamental concepts in several areas: mechanical design, computer programming, robot control, inter-device commu-nications and multimedia programming for richer story telling. This book consists of 6 chapters: 1) Chapter 1 presents an overview of the DREAM II system and its relationship with the SMART III system. The Sense-Think-Act paradigm used in developing the contents of this book is also described in this chapter. 2) Chapter 2 describes the hardware and software capabilities of the complete DREAM II system and shows how to get started with the School Set on Windows PCs as well as on Mobile Devices. This chapter also shows how to use the ROBOTIS MANAGER software tool using a basic wheeled robot design. 3) Chapter 3 is a substantial chapter providing a gradual but in-depth tutorial about applications of the R+TASK software tool using three robot designs - "Avoider/Follower," "TriCycle" and "Dowel Scanner." Topics included autonomous-behavior and remote-control algorithms, communications and audio programming techniques. PC and Mobile uses of the TASK tool are developed in this chapter. 4) Chapter 4 is also another substantial chapter mirroring the instructional approach and topics devel-oped in Chapter 3 but now using the R+SCRATCH/SCRATCH 2 tool chain and its multimedia and event programming features. 5) Chapter 5 presents mechanical design concepts inherent in the mechanical components provided in Level 1 of the "complete" DREAM II system (i.e. non-programmable), with the goal of helping students understand the mechanical design concepts represented in the provided Level 1 example robots and be creative in their own robot designs by showcasing additional mechanical concepts and robot designs. 6) Chapter 6 provides a closer look at select programmable robots provided in the School Set (i.e. Levels 2 and 3) to explain their hardware/software features and to offer suggestions to expand some selected robots beyond their original designs or solutions. This book also provides appropriate source codes and tutorial videos (via YouTube(R)) to illustrate the presented concepts, along with review questions to help students master learned materials.

The contributions in Toward Learning Robots address the question of how a robot canbe designed to acquire autonomously whatever it needs to realize adequate behavior in a complexenvironment.In-depth discussions of issues, techniques, and experiments in machine learning focus onimproving ease of programming and enhancing robustness in unpredictable and changing environments,given limitations of time and resources available to researchers. The authors show practicalprogress toward a useful set of abstractions and techniques to describe and automate various aspectsof learning in autonomous systems. The close interaction of such a system with the world revealsopportunities for new architectures and learning scenarios and for grounding symbolicrepresentations, though such thorny problems as noise, choice of language, abstraction level ofrepresentation, and operationality have to be faced head-on.Walter Van de Velde is ResearchAssistant in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the Vrije Universiteit,Brussels,Belgium.Contents: Introduction: Toward Learning Robots.

Musical robotics is a multi- and trans-disciplinary research area involving a wide range of different domains that contribute to its development, including: computer science, multimodal interfaces and processing, artificial intelligence, electronics, robotics, mechatronics and more. A musical robot requires many different complex systems to work together; integrating musical representation, techniques, expressions, detailed analysis and controls, for both playing and listening. The development of interactive multimodal systems provides advancements which enable enhanced human-machine interaction and novel possibilities for embodied robotic platforms. This volume is focused on this highly exciting interdisciplinary field. This book consists of 14 chapters highlighting different aspects of musical activities and interactions, discussing cutting edge research related to interactive multimodal systems and their integration with robots to further enhance musical understanding, interpretation, performance, education and enjoyment. It is dichotomized into two sections: Section I focuses on understanding elements of musical performance and expression while Section II concentrates on musical robots and automated instruments. Musical Robots and Interactive Multimodal Systems provides an introduction and foundation for researchers, students and practitioners to key achievements and current research trends on interactive multimodal systems and musical robotics.

Autonomous robots must carry out useful tasks all by themselves relying entirely on their own perceptions of their environment. The cognitive abilities required for autonomous action are largely independent of robot size, which makes mini robots attractive as artefacts for research, education and entertainment. Autonomous mini robots must be small enough for experimentation on a desktop or a small laboratory. They must be easy to carry and safe for interaction with humans. They must not be expensive. Mini robot designers have to work at the leading edge of technology so that their creations can carry out purposeful autonomic action under these constraints. Since 2001 researchers have met every two years for an international symposium to report on the advances achieved in Autonomous Mini Robots for Research and Edutainment (AMiRE). The AMiRE Symposium is a single track conference that offers ample opportunities for discussion and exchange of ideas. This volume contains the contributed papers of the 2011 AMiRE Symposium held from 23 to 25 May 2011 at Bielefeld University, Germany. The contributions in this volume represent the state-of-the-art of autonomous mini robots; they demonstrate what is currently technically feasible and show some of the applications for autonomous mini robots.
