Towards shape-based visual object categorization for humanoid robots

D. Gonzalez-Aguirre, J. Hoch, S. Rohl, T. Asfour, E. Bayro-Corrochano, R. Dillmann
2011 2011 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
So far, efforts on visual object categorization using humanoid robots have either been focused on appearance-based methods or have been restricted to object recognition without generalization capabilities  ...  Humanoid robots should be able to grasp and handle objects in the environment, even if the objects are seen for the first time.  ...  However, since most humanoid robots do not have light projectors, this sensing approach is not a viable option for on-line categorization systems for humanoid robots.  ...

Meeting with social robots like the cat-cucumber meeting? An integrated model of human-robot first contact. Psychological perspective

Konrad Maj, Pawel Zarzycki
2019 Paladyn: Journal of Behavioral Robotics  
People contacts with social robots, especially humanoid ones, are still rare. The vastness of research shows that we have cognitive relationships.  ...  Based on the studies in the field of social psychology, we propose an integrated theoretical model of developing cognitive category "social robot" and the mental model as a result of contact with the robot  ...  Thus, in the case of the perception of humanoid objects, two cognitive categories can be activated: machine and human, as Categorical Perception Hypothesis [57] says.  ...

Developmental and Evolutionary Lexicon Acquisition in Cognitive Agents/Robots with Grounding Principle: A Short Review

Nadia Rasheed, Shamsudin H. M. Amin
2016 Computational Intelligence and Neuroscience  
This paper concentrates on these two main modelling methods with the grounding principle for the acquisition of linguistic ability in cognitive agents or robots.  ...  This review not only presents a survey of the methodologies and relevant computational cognitive agents or robotic models, but also highlights the advantages and progress of these approaches for the language  ...  However, this model was limited in terms of the number of objects in a visual input as it considered that only one object would be presented in a single scene.  ...
