  1. 1. Mind in Action: Action Representation and the Perception of Biological Motion

    Author : Paul Hemeren; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Other social sciences Civics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Övrig samhällsvetenskap Samhällsvetenskap; Humanities and Social sciences; Humaniora-samhällsvetenskap; action; perception; concept; Cognition; categorization; embodiment; prototype; biological motion; semantics; language; configural processing; basic level; graded structure; typicality;

    Abstract : The ability to understand and communicate about the actions of others is a fundamental aspect of our daily activity. How can we talk about what others are doing? What qualities do different actions have such that they cause us to see them as being different or similar? What is the connection between what we see and the development of concepts and words or expressions for the things that we see? To what extent can two different people see and talk about the same things? Is there a common basis for our perception, and is there then a common basis for the concepts we form and the way in which the concepts become lexicalized in language? The broad purpose of this thesis is to relate aspects of perception, categorization and language to action recognition and conceptualization. READ MORE

  2. 2. The perception of actions and interactions And the importance of context

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Joshua Juvrud; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; action understanding; action perception; motion; perception; context; environment; eye-tracking; pupil dilation; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : The perception of actions and interactions is a dynamic process linked with perceptual processes, the internal and external states of the individual, prior experiences, and the immediate environment. Given these differential contexts, it is very likely there are differences in how infants perceive, interpret, and respond to actions. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Model of Driver Perception and Action in Intersections

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Bjelkemyr; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; intersection; vehicle heading; driving; behavior; driver; perception; eye movement; anticipate;

    Abstract : The objective of the research presented in this thesis is to describe driver behavior while approaching, entering and exiting an intersection. To fulfill this objective, two semi-naturalistic studies were conducted where ten driver participants drove a test vehicle through a three-way intersection repeatedly, driving straight, turning left, and turning right in a total of six possible passes.

  4. 4. Flexible Robot to Object Interactions Through Rigid and Deformable Cages

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alejandro Marzinotto; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; planning; control; perception; caging; cage; grasping; multi-agent; robot; robotic; knot; knotting; behaviour trees; behavior trees; action scheduling; RRT; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : In this thesis we study the problem of robotic interaction with objects from a flexible perspective that complements the rigid force-closure approach. In a flexible interaction the object is not firmly bound to the robot (immobilized), which leads to many interesting scenarios. READ MORE

  5. 5. Embodied simulation as off-line representation

    University dissertation from Linköping University

    Author : Henrik Svensson; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science Cognitive science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap Kognitionsvetenskap; Teknik; Technology; Embodied cognition; Simulation theories; Emulation; Forward models; Perception; Action;

    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.
