Making objects graspable in confined environments through push and pull manipulation with a tool

Sarah Elliott, Michelle Valente, Maya Cakmak
2016 2016 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)  
The proposed tool has a simple form that allows it to be used in confined environments and a high friction tool tip that enables not only pushing objects but also pulling them.  ...  In this paper we explore the use of a tool to reconfigure objects in such environments so as to make them graspable.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors thank Becky Leslie for helping collect the datasets used in experiments presented in this paper.  ...

Deep Affordance Foresight: Planning Through What Can Be Done in the Future [article]

Danfei Xu, Ajay Mandlekar, Roberto Martín-Martín, Yuke Zhu, Silvio Savarese, Li Fei-Fei
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Based on the new representation, we develop a learning-to-plan method, Deep Affordance Foresight (DAF), that learns partial environment models of affordances of parameterized motor skills through trial-and-error  ...  Planning in realistic environments requires searching in large planning spaces.  ...  In this case, a graspable(tool) would only inform that the tool can be grasped and held.  ...

Tangible User Interfaces: Past, Present, and Future Directions

2009 Foundations and Trends® in Human–Computer Interaction  
Drawing upon users' knowledge and skills of interaction with the real non-digital world, TUIs show a potential to enhance the way in which people interact with and leverage digital information.  ...  We then present TUIs in a broader context, survey application domains, and review frameworks and taxonomies.  ...  We also thank the many researchers that allowed us to use images of their work and provided us with such images and Megan Strait for helping to prepare this manuscript for print.  ...

Innate constituents of complex responses in primates

P H SCHILLER
1952 Psychological review  
Like the younger ones, these big animals tried to reduce their efforts and just push or pull a bit on the stick and then look alternately to the food and to the experimenter.  ...  The infants will try just to touch it, or pull in straight, or push it aside and display, after this performance, every sign of expectation of food.  ...

How we remember what we can do

Gunnar Declerck
2015 Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology  
However, when precisely motor simulation plays a role and what it is for exactly currently remain largely unknown.  ...  The claim that perceptual access to affordances is mediated by motor simulation processes rests on a misunderstanding of what affordances are, and comes up against a computational reality principle.  ...  Conflict of interest and funding The authors have not received any funding or benefits from industry or elsewhere to conduct this study.  ...
