Integrating Virtual and Human Instructors in Robotic Learning Environments
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents two different approaches for utilizing virtual environments to enable learning for both human and robotic students. In the first approach, we showcase a 3D interactive environment that allows a human user to learn how to interact with a virtual robot, before interaction with a physical robot. In the second approach, we present a method that utilizes a simulation environment to provide feedback to a human teacher during a training session in order to concurrently allow adaptation of the learning process for both the teacher and the robotic student. We provide details of the approaches in this paper and provide results of the learning outcomes for the two different scenarios.
