Smart-E An Autonomous Omnidirectional Underwater Robot

Benjamin Meyer, Kristian Ehlers, Christoph Osterloh, Erik Maehle
2013 Paladyn: Journal of Behavioral Robotics  
Besides the autonomous behaviors, the main challenge is to control all six DOF of the AUV to achieve a smooth and controllable omnidirectional underwater movement even in rough environments.  ...  This leads to a manoeuvrability of six degrees of freedom (DOF).  ...  At the beginning, the robot starts to dive directly to a depth of up to 12 cm. In this situation, the overshoot is nearly 10 cm.  ...

Voice-awareness control for a humanoid robot consistent with its body posture and movements

Takuma Otsuka, Kazuhiro Nakadai, Toru Takahashi, Kazunori Komatani, Tetsuya Ogata, Hiroshi G. Okuno
2010 Paladyn: Journal of Behavioral Robotics  
The consistency between the robot's voice quality and its body motion is one of the most especially striking factors in naturalness of robot speech.  ...  Experimental results show that the voice-awareness is perceivable in a robot-to-robot dialogue when the robots stand up to 150 cm away.  ...  The authors would like to thank Mario Suzuki and the members of Okuno and Ogata Laboratory for their discussion and valuable suggestions.  ...

Robot-Assisted Therapy for Autism Spectrum Disorders with (Partially) Autonomous Control: Challenges and Outlook

Serge Thill, Cristina A Pop, Tony Belpaeme, Tom Ziemke, Bram Vanderborght
2012 Paladyn: Journal of Behavioral Robotics  
Specifically, we argue that the next step in such therapeutic scenarios is the development of more substantial levels of autonomy which would allow the robot to adapt to the individual needs of children  ...  We argue that this requires new advances on the level of robot controllers as well as the ability to infer and classify intentions, goals and emotional states of the robot's interactants.  ...  sound in a low volume is enough.  ...
