Industrial Robot Grasping with Deep Learning using a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) [article]

Eugen Solowjow, Ines Ugalde, Yash Shahapurkar, Juan Aparicio, Jeff Mahler, Vishal Satish, Ken Goldberg, Heiko Claussen
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Universal grasping of a diverse range of previously unseen objects from heaps is a grand challenge in e-commerce order fulfillment, manufacturing, and home service robotics.  ...  The success rate of grasping an object form a bin is up to 95 percent with more than 350 picks per hour, if object and receptive bins are in close proximity.  ...  For example, clearing a bin of objects requires a different approach than picking one desired object from a heap. The problem addressed in this paper is as follows.  ...

Frege on Vagueness and Ordinary Language

Stephen Puryear
2012 The Philosophical Quarterly  
But given other things he evidently believes, such a position would seem to commit him to a suspect nihilism according to which assertoric sentences containing vague predicates are neither true nor false  ...  If we said instead "history of attempts to grasp a concept" or "history of the grasp of the concept", this would seem to me much more to the point; for a [logical?]  ...  Similarly, he would have to say that 'heap' acquires a Bedeutung in the context of the sentence 'All dunes are heaps' just in case the concept heap is either defined for all dunes, in which case again  ...

How does a box work? A study in the qualitative dynamics of solid objects

Ernest Davis
2011 Artificial Intelligence  
This paper is an in-depth study of qualitative physical reasoning about one particular scenario: using a box to carry a collection of objects from one place to another.  ...  Our theory is elaboration tolerant in the sense that carrying out the analogous inference for carrying objects in boxes with lids, in boxes with small holes, or on trays can reuse much of the same knowledge  ...  Third, two distinct maximal heaps cannot abut one another. Thus, around any maximal heap there is a clear space free of any mobile objects.  ...

The Vulgar Conception of Objects in "Of Skepticism with Regard to the Senses"

Meier, Reimarus and Kant on Animal Minds

Jacob Browning
2021 Kantian Review  
A major disputed text for understanding Kant on animals is his criticism of G. F. Meier's view in the 1762 'False Subtlety of the Four Syllogistic Figures'.  ...  AbstractClose attention to Kant's comments on animal minds has resulted in radically different readings of key passages in Kant.  ...  Van den Berg (: -) provides an excellent discussion of how this process works for Reimarus, especially in complex cases.  These passages also show the influence of French sensualists, especially  ...

Understanding dynamic scenes

A. Chella, M. Frixione, S. Gaglio
2000 Artificial Intelligence  
We propose a framework for the representation of visual knowledge in a robotic agent, with special attention to the understanding of dynamic scenes.  ...  Developing such a description requires both bottom-up, data driven processes that associate symbolic knowledge representation structures with the data coming out of a vision system, and top-down processes  ...  This work has been partially supported by the ASI Project "An Intelligent System for the Supervision of Autonomous Robots in Space" and by the MURST Project "Progetto Cofinanziato CERTAMEN".  ...

GKNet: grasp keypoint network for grasp candidates detection [article]

Ruinian Xu, Fu-Jen Chu, Patricio A. Vela
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The deep network detects each grasp candidate as a pair of keypoints, convertible to the grasp representationg = x, y, w, θ T , rather than a triplet or quartet of corner points.  ...  Follow-up experiments on a manipulator evaluate GKNet using 4 types of grasping experiments reflecting different nuisance sources: static grasping, dynamic grasping, grasping at varied camera angles, and  ...  Likewise, identifying a means to translate the 2D grasp representation to a full 3D grasp pose would remove the need for a top-down grasp and permit richer manipulation from more varied viewpoints.  ...
