To demonstrate the combination of robot software engineering and the aggregation of cloud services into on demonstrator, we created the Mighty Chuck, a new football oracle predicting football matches based on web-services providing statistics on probabilities on the involved teams. We tested the service for tormorrow’s match of Germany vs. Italy:
From March, 29th to March, 30th 2012 the Silicon Saxony Cluster organizes a Workshop onf Cyber-Physical Systems and Energy-efficient Applications. The QualiTune project will be present with two presentations and one talk at the workshop.
- On Thursday, March, 29th, Prof. Uwe Aßmann will introduce into the workshop with a talk focusing on Life-by-Wire.
- Following, on Thursday, March, 29th, Ronny Kaiser shows how NAO robots can be controlled using Microsoft’s Kinect controller during his talk Gestenbasierte Benutzerschnittstellen für Cyber-physikalische Systeme.
- On Friday, March, 30th, Claas Wilke will talk on energy-efficiency as a challenge for Cyber-Physical Systems during his talk Energie-Tests Cyber-physikalischer Systeme.
