Preemptive Motion Planning for Human-to-Robot Indirect Placement Handovers [article]

Andrew Choi, Mohammad Khalid Jawed, Jungseock Joo
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Human-to-robot handovers can take either of two approaches: (1) direct hand-to-hand or (2) indirect hand-to-placement-to-pick-up.  ...  Furthermore, for the robot to preemptively act in any sort of productive manner, predictions and motion planning must occur in real-time.  ...  In this paper, we investigate the problem of preemptive motion planning for efficient human-to-robot indirect object placement transfers using real-time predictions of human object placement intent as  ...

Legible Robot Motion Planning

Anca D. Dragan
The goal of this thesis is to enable robots to produce motion that is suitable for human-robot collaboration and co-existence.  ...  In this work, we move beyond functional motion, and introduce the notion of an observer into motion planning, so that robots can generate motion that is mindful of how it will be interpreted by a human  ...  Some techniques anticipate the future human motion in order to preemptively plan a successful avoidance path [239, 152] .  ...
