VisuoSpatial Foresight for Multi-Step, Multi-Task Fabric Manipulation [article]

Ryan Hoque, Daniel Seita, Ashwin Balakrishna, Aditya Ganapathi, Ajay Kumar Tanwani, Nawid Jamali, Katsu Yamane, Soshi Iba, Ken Goldberg
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Existing fabric manipulation techniques, however, are designed for specific tasks, making it difficult to generalize across different but related tasks.  ...  We experimentally evaluate VSF on multi-step fabric smoothing and folding tasks against 5 baseline methods in simulation and on the da Vinci Research Kit (dVRK) surgical robot without any demonstrations  ...  how the learned dynamics can be used to define a goal-conditioned fabric manipulation policy which can perform a variety of multi-step fabric smoothing and folding tasks, and 3) results suggesting that  ...

Bodies Uncovered: Learning to Manipulate Real Blankets Around People via Physics Simulations [article]

Kavya Puthuveetil, Charles C. Kemp, Zackory Erickson
2022 arXiv   pre-print
To provide assistance for many daily self-care tasks, such as bathing, dressing, or ambulating, a caregiver must first uncover blankets from part of a person's body.  ...  In this work, we introduce a formulation for robotic bedding manipulation around people in which a robot uncovers a blanket from a target body part while ensuring the rest of the human body remains covered  ...  Hoque et. al [13] introduce VisuoSpatial Foresight, which learns visual dynamics from RGB-D images in simulation instead of performing state estimation for a multi-step fabric smoothing task.  ...

Strengthening human-robot symbiosis through multimodal sensing

Daniel Freer, Benny Lo
2021
As robotic technology has advanced throughout the ages, one of its primary functions has been to assist humans in completing difficult or dangerous tasks.  ...  This relationship is explored through several technologies: 1) a telerobotic simulator for training; 2) a wearable robotic sensing system for the arm; 3) motor imagery control of an assistive robot; and  ...  visuospatial tasks [148] .  ...

Autobiographical thinking: processes of thinking about personal past and future events

Aline Cordonnier
2022
In my theoretical chapter, I present an integrated cognitive framework for understanding processes of autobiographical thinking.  ...  This cognitive framework maps the domain of what I term "autobiographical thinking" and sets the scene for the following empirical chapters.  ...  In one sense, planning uses simulation (to simulate the steps or the goals), but is a more complex and multi-components process.  ...
