Enhancing Robot Programming With Visual Feedback and Augmented Reality

Enhancing Robot Programming paperA paper written under the framework of the FIcontent project has recently been accepted for the 20th Annual Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education (ITiCSE 2015), that will take place at the Vilnius University, Vilnus, Lithuania, from July 6-8 2015.

In their previous research, the authors showed that students using the educational robot Thymio and its visual programming environment were able to learn the important computer-science concept of event-handling. “Enhancing Robot Programming With Visual Feedback and Augmented Reality” extends that work by integrating augmented reality (AR) into the activities and investigates the results.

This paper was written by Stéphane Magnenat (1), Morderchai Ben-Ari (2), Severin Klinger (3) and Robert W. Sumner (4).
