BendIT - An Interactive Game with Two Robots

Below you can watch a video of the achievements of the Lab Course "Controlling Interactive Games and Robots" at the Knowledge-based Systems Group of the RWTH Aachen University in winter term 2011/2012. It was designed and implemented by the students of the lab course.

A human user uses his torso movements to steer a Festo Robotino robot along a pre-defined course. Our domestic service robot Caesar acts as a referee and autonomously follows the Robotino and makes sure that it stays within a corridor along the path. If the user manages to keep the Robotino within the corridor for the whole path he wins. The game can be used, for example, to engage people in physical training such as a rehabilitation after an injury.
