The laboratory RoCoCo (Cognitive Cooperating Robots) is located at DIAG
(Dipartimento di Ingegneria Informatica, Automatica e Gestionale) of Sapienza
University of Rome, Italy.
The research developed at RoCoCo laboratory is in the area of Artificial Intelligence
and Robotics and started with the participation to the RoboCup competitions in
RoCoCo laboratory has several types of robotic platforms, that are used both for
research project and as support to the courses of the Master in Artificial Intelligence
and Robotics, offered at DIAG. Among the platforms available Aldebaran NAO
humanoid robots (formerly Sony AIBO), wheeled mobile robots (Pioneer, Videre
Erratic, TurtleBot, Segway), a mobile manipulator Kuka YouBot, and small UAVs from
Ascending Technologies. In addition, several sensors are available both for mobile
and fixed installations, including stereo cameras, depth sensors laser scanners, IMU,
At RoCoCo laboratory several software tools have been developed, including:
OpenRDK Robotic Software Development Framework, Petri Net Plans (PNP), IMBS
Background Subtraction Library, WiiC C/C++ Library for Wiimote.
The following domains have been targeted by the research projects carried out at
RoCoCo Laboratory currently hosts 5 faculties (Daniele Nardi, Luca Iocchi,
Giorgio Grisetti, Domenico Daniele Bloisi, and Alberto Pretto), 10 PhD Students, and several
The group has a solid tradition of cooperation with other research groups worldwide, and is very interested in establishing new collaborations and hosting foreign researchers.
