An object representation and methods for uncertainty-aware shape estimation and grasping [article]

Stanimir Dragiev, Universität Stuttgart, Universität Stuttgart
2015
It has already taught us that intelligence is not solely a matter of high cognition, but implies understanding of seemingly trivial everyday skills like walking, sentiment detection and interaction with  ...  The functions have such a shape that can be interpreted as potential field generated by the object. A controller uses this to navigate a robot arm for grasping and manipulation.  ...  We contribute a representation (think s) which has a simple interface to the sensor input and at the same time is well suited to design reflex-level or affordance-level primitives (think a).  ...
