We have developed several innovative designs for a new kind of robot that uses a continuous wave of peristalsis for locomotion, the same method that earthworms use, and report on the first completed prototypes. This form of locomotion is particularly effective in constrained spaces, and although...
We describe CST, an online algorithm for constructing skill trees from demonstration trajectories. CST segments a demonstration trajectory into a chain of component skills, where each skill has a goal and is assigned a suitable abstraction from an abstraction library. These properties permit...
We present a unified filtering framework for hybrid metric/topological robot global localization and SLAM. At a high level, our method relies on a topological graph representation whose vertices define uniquely identifiable places in the environment and whose edges define feasible paths between...
Electromagnetic drives are subjected to an inherent inertia–torque tradeoff that fundamentally limits transparency: the higher the torque, the higher the inertia. We describe a dual-stage design that is not subjected to this tradeoff and that is able to approach perfect transparency for human...
This paper deals with the trajectory generation problem faced by an autonomous vehicle in moving traffic. Being given the predicted motion of the traffic flow, the proposed semi-reactive planning strategy realizes all required long-term maneuver tasks (lane-changing, merging, distance-keeping,...
In this paper we describe an approach for on-line, incremental learning of full body motion primitives from observation of human motion. The continuous observation sequence is first partitioned into motion segments, using stochastic segmentation. Next, motion segments are incrementally clustered...
To address the limited dexterous workspace of the human hand, we have developed the Active Handrest. This device assists in precision manipulation tasks by extending a user’s dexterous workspace while providing ergonomic support for reduced fatigue. People use handrests to complete dexterous...
