Agnieszka Wykowska, Anna Schubö
2011 International Journal of Social Robotics  
This paper focuses on the topic of human cognitive architecture in the context of links between action and perception.  ...  Examples of such systems are described and the application of those approaches to robotics is stressed.  ...  In these studies, participants were asked to lift or hold boxes of various weights.

Following human guidance to cooperatively carry a large object

Jorg Stuckler, Sven Behnke
2011 2011 11th IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots  
Carrying a large object like a table is a task that cannot be solved by a single robot or a single human, but that requires two workers, for example one human and one robot.  ...  This real-time object pose estimate is suitable for approaching and grasping it, as well as for the detection of object lifting and lowering to the ground again.  ...  The robot can also judge when the table is lifted or put down by the human user through measuring its pitch rotation.  ...

To Afford or Not to Afford: A New Formalization of Affordances Toward Affordance-Based Robot Control

Erol Şahin, Maya Çakmak, Mehmet R. Doğar, Emre Uğur, Göktürk Üçoluk
2007 Adaptive Behavior  
Although introduced in psychology, the concept influenced studies in other fields ranging from human-computer interaction to autonomous robotics.  ...  We point out that there are three, not one, perspectives from which to view affordances and that much of the confusion regarding discussions on the concept has arisen from this.  ...  Last but not least, we would like to thank Tony Chemero and our anonymous reviewer, for providing constructive comments that led to the clarification of the stance of our formalism against the Gibsonian  ...

Robo-Erectus: a low-cost autonomous humanoid soccer robot

Changjiu Zhou, Pik Kong Yue
2004 Advanced Robotics  
Note that humans do not just learn a task by trial and error, rather they observe how other people perform a similar task and then repeat them by perceptions.  ...  By using the proposed FRL approach, we demonstrate that RE is able to start walking from an initial gait generated from perception-based information on human walking, and learn to fine-tune its walking  ...

A Framework for Sensorimotor Cross-Perception and Cross-Behavior Knowledge Transfer for Object Categorization

Gyan Tatiya, Ramtin Hosseini, Michael C. Hughes, Jivko Sinapov
2020 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
From an early age, humans learn to develop an intuition for the physical nature of the objects around them by using exploratory behaviors.  ...  The main hypothesis behind our approach is that if two or more robots share multi-sensory object observations of a shared set of objects, then those observations can be used to establish mappings between  ...  For example, to detect whether a container is full or empty, a human may lift it; to perceive whether a ball is soft or hard, a human may squeeze it (Gibson, 1988) .  ...
