In the upcoming semester students will develop "smart products" for humans and robots.

This project is a joint teaching and research project on developing new consumer products with cognitive capabilities. During the practical course the students will learn more about cognition and how this can be applied to a real product. During the practical course students deal with cognitive systems, new product development, prototyping and soft skills, including working in multidisciplinary teams. The project has resulted in both new and innovative cognitive products as well as educating and motivating students in the topics of the CoTeSys research cluster.

Student groups are organized during the first weeks, they will work on the development and prototyping of a product that exhibits some cognitive behavior or/and that can be use by a cognitive system. The practical course has coaches that take the roll of guides for each group. The practical course consists of lectures explaining the contents of the course to the students, student meetings (with the coaches) and development of a prototype of the product.
