Project Work


The project work will be done in teams of 2 to 3 persons. You will choose a topic you are interessted in to work on for about four weeks. You will write a small development/implementation plan that you should stick to during work.


There are some team functions to be maped to persons:

  • Group Leader: You will serve as an interface to the development team. You will make some weekly reports about the development progress and how the progress matches the the development plans. The leader has administrative tasks there is no implicit hirarchy created with this function.
  • Analyst: You will create logical modules out of the task description and write them out in an Class-UML diagram.
  • Architect: You will have the task to seek all necessary information about the software interfaces to Orxonox. If your project needs external libraries you will have to check them out and test if they realy serve the purpose.
