Where can I find literature for my project?

Biorob has a local literature repository, where you might find some useful resources.

A lot of Swiss University Libraries are part of NEBIS, what makes it a primary resource for books and older journal articles. Furthermore, EPFL has access to a lot of online journals and literature databases. There are a number of tools to manage your references, e.g. firefox based plugin Zotero or web-based services likeLabmeeting.

Where can I find a logo of Biorob to include in my report?

I need help with LaTeX?
