  1. 1. From Human to Robot Grasping

    Author : Javier Romero; Danica Kragic; Jana Kosecka; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; computer vision; hand tracking; hand pose estimation; human-to-robot mapping; robotics; grasping; modeling; human action modeling; dimensionality reduction; taxonomy; corrective movements; visual servoing;

    Abstract : Imagine that a robot fetched this thesis for you from a book shelf. How doyou think the robot would have been programmed? One possibility is thatexperienced engineers had written low level descriptions of all imaginabletasks, including grasping a small book from this particular shelf. READ MORE

  2. 2. Minding the Body : Interacting socially through embodied action

    Author : Jessica Lindblom; Tom Ziemke; Shaun Gallagher; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Embodiment; embodied cognition; embodied cognitive science; social interaction; social cognition; embodied action; interactive technology; Cognitive science; Kognitionsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This dissertation clarifies the role and relevance of the body in social interaction and cognition from an embodied cognitive science perspective. Theories of embodied cognition have during the past two decades offered a radical shift in explanations of the human mind, from traditional computationalism which considers cognition in terms of internal symbolic representations and computational processes, to emphasizing the way cognition is shaped by the body and its sensorimotor interaction with the surrounding social and material world.

  3. 3. Embodied simulation as off-line representation

    Author : Henrik Svensson; Tom Ziemke; Germund Hesslow; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Embodied cognition; Simulation theories; Emulation; Forward models; Perception; Action; Cognitive science; Kognitionsvetenskap; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis argues that a key to understanding the embodiment of cognition is the “sharing” of neural mechanisms between sensorimotor processes and higher-level cognitive processes as described by simulation theories. Simulation theories explain higher-level cognition as (partial) simulations or emulations of sensorimotor processes through the re-activation of neural circuitry also active in bodily perception, action, and emotion.

  4. 4. Modeling, Optimization and Analysis of Electromobility Systems

    Author : Gabriel Domingues; Industriell elektroteknik och automation; []
    Keywords : Electromobility; Electric Vehicles; Hybrid Vehicles; Charging; Modeling; Optimization;

    Abstract : Due to an increase in environmental awareness and an improved understanding on the impact of human activity on our planet’s climate, there is a strong desire both from governments and the general public to reduce harmful pollution and emissions. This requires action on different fronts, like decarbonizing electricity generation, industrial activity and not least the transport sector. READ MORE

  5. 5. Generative models for action generation and action understanding

    Author : Judith Bütepage; Danica Kragic; Ivan Laptev; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : The question of how to build intelligent machines raises the question of how to rep-resent the world to enable intelligent behavior. In nature, this representation relies onthe interplay between an organism’s sensory input and motor input. Action-perceptionloops allow many complex behaviors to arise naturally. READ MORE
