  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. Robot path planning : an object-oriented approach

    Author : Morten Strandberg; Bo Wahlberg; Steven La Valle; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Signalbehandling; mathematics; computer science; Signalbehandling; Signal processing; Signalbehandling;

    Abstract : Path planning has important applications in many areas, for example industrial robotics, autonomous systems, virtual prototyping, and computer-aided drug design. This thesis presents a new framework for developing and evaluating path planning algorithms. The framework is named CoPP (Components for Path Planning). READ MORE

  3. 3. Sense of Touch in Robots

    Author : Magnus Johnsson; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; touch perception; neural network; robot hand; brain model; cognitive model; robot model; tensor network; associative self-organizing map; SOM; proprioception;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses a number of robot touch perception systems. All these systems are self-organizing and model different aspects of human touch perception. The thesis starts out with introductions to the anatomy and the physiology of the human hand. READ MORE

  4. 4. Programming by demonstration of robot manipulators

    Author : Alexander Skoglund; Rainer Palm; Honghai Liu; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; programming-by-demonstration; imitation learning; hand-state; next-state-planner; fuzzy time-modeling approach; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Computer and Systems Science; Data- och systemvetenskap; Människa-dator interaktion; Human-Computer Interaction;

    Abstract : If a non-expert wants to program a robot manipulator he needs a natural interface that does not require rigorous robot programming skills. Programming-by-demonstration (PbD) is an approach which enables the user to program a robot by simply showing the robot how to perform a desired task. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tactile Grasping for Domestic Service Robots : Simulations, Experiments and Hand Design

    Author : Johan Tegin; Jan Wikander; Rüdinger Dillman; KTH; []
    Keywords : Manipulators; Simulation; Robot tactile systems; Modeling; Grasping; Tactile sensors; Mechanical engineering; Maskinteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents methods and tools for robotic grasping. The application in mind is service robots for a home environment, although the work also has applications in other areas. Service robots must be capable of manipulation, i.e. READ MORE
