AiRobo Artificial Intelligence based Robotics is an Erasmus+ cross-country project in the European Union. Its goal is to bring professionals working in universities in several countries closer to each other, and jointly lay down the principles of artificial intelligence-driven robots. Within the framework of the tender, we share our experiences in training sessions over several weeks, and use the knowledge gained to write a joint book on robotics technologies for agriculture. Universities from 5 countries, West University of Timişoara (WUT-Romania), University of Macedonia (UoM - Greece), Université de Lorraine (UL-France), RWTH Aachen University (RWTH-Germany), Eszterházy Károly Catholic University (EKCU-Hungary) and experts from several companies participated in the training sessions. Consortium members took part in presentations on robotics, artificial intelligence and simulation topics at several locations in Hungary. Many of our colleagues were also present as speakers on these events.

The first two days of the educational period were held at the Computer Science and Automation Research Institute (SZTAKI), where we heard interesting lectures on robotics and artificial intelligence.  On the first day, after a short welcome, we delved into the basic concept of robotics and we discussed kinematic models. The second day was dedicated to different solutions to inverse kinematics problems and robot programming. We were then given an interesting introduction to reinforcement learning and looked at the current state-of-the-art models.

From the 3rd day of the lectures, the headquarter was moved to Eger, where our colleagues Krisztián Kusper, Péter Csóka and Krisztián Vajda gave presentations. On the first day in Eger, Krisztián Vajda gave a lecture on Unity basics, where the professionals attending the training were introduced to the simulation engine, simulated physics and various programmable interactions that such a graphical engine can provide. On the second day, Krisztián Vajda also gave a lecture on building spatial meshes, procedural generation and pseudo random augmentation, followed by simulations of car-rover motion and wheel simulations.
