UBTECH Partners with Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute Summer Scholars to Grow the Robotics Innovators of Tomorrow

WHAT: UBTECH Robotics, a global leader in intelligent humanoid robotics and AI technologies, and Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute Summer Scholars (RISS) program will invite about 35  RISS scholars to join a three-day summer workshop where they will learn about, build, and code Yanshee, a first-of-its-kind, open-source, humanoid robot. Yanshee combines an advanced AI interface, programmable Raspberry Pi card, and a host of sensors and functionality to create the ultimate platform for educators, students, and robot enthusiasts to learn about, research, experiment, and engage with robotics.

WHY: Now in its third year, the workshop includes lectures on programming with the Robot Operating System (ROS), demos of UBTECH’s service robots including Walker and Cruzr, and a robot programming challenge that culminates in a public demonstration of students’ robot innovations.

WHEN: July 17–19, 2019. The public demonstration is 4:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 19.
