Virtual brick robot made with the Virtual Robotics Toolkit

Team of Winnipeg Computer Scientists in the Running for Manning Award

February 18, 2016 — 

A team of computer scientists with Cogmation robotics are nominated for an Ernest C. Manning Innovation Award.

Three former UofM Computer Science students have developed a robotics simulator that ties into the LEGO® Mindstorms® system and allows people to create, program, and test virtual robots.

Andrew Winton and Eric Himbeault took an industrial simulator developed by Shane Yanke and adapted it into a powerful educational tool.

Winton and Yanke both worked on robotics and AI while at the UofM and previously did a lot of work on many of the UofM’s successful robocup teams.
