GSoC Ideas

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2014

At PAL Robotics we have some ideas for the Google Summer of Code 2014

Web rviz

Brief explanation: Integrate robot web tools to mimic rviz features. Creating a web rviz will simplify visualization of a ROS-based robot data and allow it to be multiplatform.

Expected results: a web application that provides visualization of some of the rviz data type, possibly working with robotwebtools.org

Knowledge Prerequisite: intermediate-advanced JavaScript and general knowledge about RIAs, HTML, CSS (SASS/LESS), intermediate Linux and basic knowledge about ROS. Being familiar with at least one front-end framework is convenient

Skill level: advanced

Mentor: Eduard Gamonal

Remote Lab

Brief explanation: Extending a prototype of a remote lab web application to conduct remote experiments in the field of humanoid robotics.

Expected results: an implementation of use cases related to robotics research and experiments with full-size humanoid robots (e.g. extend the software to support multicondition experiments, A/B tests, hypotheses, book the robot yourself — calendar, record data from the cameras, record movements, etc) or improvements in the security (e.g. do not let users run software that may physically damage the robot)

Knowledge Prerequisite: intermediate JavaScript and general knowledge about RIAs, HTML, CSS (SASS/LESS), intermediate Linux and basic knowledge about ROS. Being familiar with at least one front-end framework is convenient. Basic-intermediate Django. Knowing about UX/UI is nice.

Skill level: medim

Mentor: Eduard Gamonal
