All you need to know about Lisa

Lisa is the autonomous service robot of team homer@UniKoblenz. She participates in the RoboCup and RoCKIn competition in the @Home league. Lisa is able to build 2D-grid maps and navigate savely and autonomously even in dynamic environments. She can memorize, detect and recognize objects. Using her 6-DOF arm Lisa can grasp objects from tables and shelves, carry them and pass them on to people.

Lisa is also able to detect and recognize faces and to follow people. To interact with Lisa one can use speech or gestures. Lisa is able to understand spoken commands and reply using a synthesized female voice. Lisa’s animated face can take seven different expressions to convey a specific mood. While speaking her lips move correctly synchronized according to the spoken words.

Student’s Projects

The Active Vision Group offers practical courses for students where the abilities of Lisa are further extended. In the scope of these courses the students design, develop, and test new software components and try out new hardware setups. The practical courses are supervised by a research associate. Latest information and impressions are available on this website. To learn more about the various projects of the last years, please take a look at the project history.
