Perception for the manipulation of socks

Ping Chuan Wang, S. Miller, M. Fritz, T. Darrell, P. Abbeel
2011 2011 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
We consider the perceptual challenges inherent in the robotic manipulation of previously unseen socks, with the end goal of manipulation by a household robot for laundry.  ...  We describe novel approaches to two key perceptual problems: (i) Inferring the configuration of the sock, and (ii) determining which socks should be paired together.  ...  Indeed, the high variability in, for example, household environments, poses a number of challenges to robotic perception and manipulation.  ...

Rigid and non-rigid classification using interactive perception

Bryan Willimon, Stan Birchfield, Ian Walker
2010 2010 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
This paper explores the benefits of combining the two by addressing the problem of classifying unknown objects, such as found in service robot applications.  ...  Robotics research tends to focus upon either noncontact sensing or machine manipulation, but not both.  ...  We used typical socks and shoes of different colors and sizes for this experiment, for which the results are shown in Figures 12 and 13 .  ...

A perceptual interface for vision substitution in a color matching experiment

G. Bologna, B. Deville, M. Vinckenbosch, T. Pun
2008 2008 IEEE International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence)  
We introduce an experiment in which several participants try to match pairs of colored socks by pointing a head mounted camera and by listening to the generated sounds.  ...  Our experiments demonstrated that blindfolded individuals were able to accurately match pairs of colored socks.  ...  In the See ColOr project, general targeted applications are the search for items of particular interest for blind users, the manipulation of objects and the navigation in an unknown environment.  ...

Acute effects of wearing compression knee-length socks on ankle joint position sense in community-dwelling older adults

Mei Teng Woo, Keith Davids, Jia Yi Chow, Timo Jaakkola, Bijan Najafi
2021 PLoS ONE  
Functional proprioceptive information is required to allow an individual to interact with the environment effectively for everyday activities such as locomotion and object manipulation.  ...  Among the KLS of various compression levels, results suggested that only wearing clinical compression KLS (20–30 mmHg) improved the precision of estimation of ankle joint plantar flexion movement, by reducing  ...  Acknowledgments We acknowledge the support from the compression sock manufacturer: ZeroPoint, Finland (www.zp.fi).  ...

POMDP approach to robotized clothes separation

Pol Monso, Guillem Alenya, Carme Torras
2012 2012 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
Given the great complexity of accurately modeling deformable objects, their manipulation seems to call for a rather different approach.  ...  Experimental results show the promise of the approach since more than 95% certainty of having isolated a piece of clothing is reached in an average of four steps for quite entangled initial clothing configurations  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to thank J.L. Rivero for his help in performing the experiments, and A. Ramisa for providing the code of the wrinkledness detector.  ...

2017 Journal of Experimental Biology  
Pathogen manipulation of the hostseeking behaviour of vectors towards susceptible hosts is supposedly beneficial for transmission.  ...  For West Nile virus (WNV), manipulation of the host-seeking behaviour of the main mosquito vector towards birds would be advantageous, because mammals are dead-end hosts.  ...  of cell cultures, Hans Smid for support and training in EAG experiments, and Marcel Dicke for providing comments on an earlier version of the manuscript.  ...

How to Study Choice-Induced Attitude Change: Strategies for Fixing the Free-Choice Paradigm

Jane L. Risen, M. Keith Chen
2010 Social & Personality Psychology Compass  
The theory of cognitive dissonance has been among the most influential theories in social psychology for the last 50 years.  ...  Second, we will offer four suggestions for how researchers can isolate the effect of the choice process and properly test for choice-induced attitude change in the free-choice paradigm.  ...  The experimenter hid the toys in two socks, so the child saw two lumps in one sock (lumps A and B) and one lump in her other sock (lump C).  ...

Classification of clothing using interactive perception

Bryan Willimon, Stan Birchfield, Ian Walker
2011 2011 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
The contributions of this paper are a novel method for extracting articles of clothing from a pile of laundry and a novel method of classifying clothing using interactive perception.  ...  Experiments demonstrate the ability of the system to efficiently classify and label into one of six categories (pants, shorts, short-sleeve shirt, long-sleeve shirt, socks, or underwear).  ...  The proposed method can be seen as a particular application of the paradigm of interactive perception, also known as manipulation-guided sensing, in which the manipulation is used to guide the sensing  ...

Using depth and appearance features for informed robot grasping of highly wrinkled clothes

Arnau Ramisa, Guillem Alenya, Francesc Moreno-Noguer, Carme Torras
2012 2012 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation  
Detecting grasping points is a key problem in cloth manipulation.  ...  Most current approaches follow a multiple regrasp strategy for this purpose, in which clothes are sequentially grasped from different points until one of them yields to a desired configuration.  ...  More related to our work, in [2] the authors use state-ofthe-art computer vision techniques for the manipulation of socks.  ...
