  1. 1. Applications of the Virtual Holonomic Constraints Approach : Analysis of Human Motor Patterns and Passive Walking Gaits

    Author : Uwe Mettin; Anton Shiriaev; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Motion Planning; Humanoid Robots; Virtual Holonomic Constraints; Underactuated Mechanical Systems; Mechanical Springs; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : In the field of robotics there is a great interest in developing strategies and algorithms to reproduce human-like behavior. One can think of human-like machines that may replace humans in hazardous working areas, perform enduring assembly tasks, serve the elderly and handicapped, etc. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolutionary Humanoids for Embodied Artificial Intelligence

    Author : Krister Wolff; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : linear genetic programming; bipedal locomotion; humanoid robotics; evolutionary algorithms;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis aims at investigating the potential of a proposed methodology to create a cognitive control architecture for a humanoid robot. This architecture comprises three hierarchical layers: the reactive layer, the model building layer, and the reasoning layer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Grounding Emotion Appraisal in Autonomous Humanoids

    Author : Kiril Kiryazov; Robert Lowe; Emilia Barakova; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The work presented in this dissertation investigates the problem for resource management of autonomous robots. Acting under the constraint of limited resources is a necessity for every robot which should perform tasks independent of human control. READ MORE

  4. 4. Performance, Processing and Perception of Communicative Motion for Avatars and Agents

    Author : Simon Alexanderson; Jonas Beskow; John Glauert; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Tal- och musikkommunikation; Speech and Music Communication;

    Abstract : Artificial agents and avatars are designed with a large variety of face and body configurations. Some of these (such as virtual characters in films) may be highly realistic and human-like, while others (such as social robots) have considerably more limited expressive means. READ MORE

  5. 5. Combining Task and Motion Planning

    Author : Fabien Lagriffoul; Alessandro Saffiotti; Lars Karlsson; Malik Ghallab; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Datavetenskap; Computer Science;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the problem of automatically computing, given a high-level goal description, a sequence of actions and motion paths for one or several robots to achieve that goal. Also referred to as CTAMP (Combining Task And Motion Planning), this problem may seem trivial at first glance, since efficient solutions have been found for its two underlying problems, namely task planning and motion planning.
