HRI2008 Student Design Competition

I organized the HRI2008 Student Design Competition this year. We had seven teams from around the world, each giving the jury (Hiroshi Ishiguro, Kerstin Dautenhan, Peter Kahn, Karl MacDorman, audience) a five minutes presentation. The students created marvelous robots in the short time that was available to them. In the end, the team from Amsterdam won with their Phobot.
