In the new episode of RobotsPodcast, we look at the playful field of educational robotics. We start by talking to Dr. Francesco Mondada, the leader of the MOBOTS group at EPFL, about his group's efforts in this field. Focus is given to the Robotics Festival, an annual event he started back in 2008. We then talk with St├ęphane Magnenat, a former member of the group and current member of the Autonomous Systems Lab at ETHZ. St├ęphane developed ASEBA, a straight-forward software package that allows beginners to program robots easily and efficiently. Finally, Fanny Riedo, PhD student in the MOBOTS group, presents the low-cost educational Thymio II robot. To learn more about robots in art read on or tune in!
