Intelligent Learning for Deformable Object Manipulation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000-08)
The majority of manipulation systems are designed with the assumption that the objects being handled are rigid and do not deform when grasped. This paper addresses the problem of robotic grasping and manipulation of 3-D ...
A Self-Contained Traversability Sensor for Safe Mobile Robot Guidance in Unknown Terrain
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-09)
Autonomous mobile robots capable of intelligent behavior must operate with minimal human interaction, have the capability to utilize local resources, and routinely make closed-loop decisions in real-time based on sensor ...
Automatic Generation of Persistent Formations for Multi-agent Networks under Range Constraints
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-10)
We present graph-based methods for determining if a mobile robot network with a defined sensor and communication range can persistently achieve a specified formation, which implies that the formation, once achieved, will ...
Visualize Your Robot with Your Eyes Closed: A Multi-modal Interactive Approach Using Environmental Feedback
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-05)
Learning Approaches Applied to Human-Robot Interaction for Space Missions
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008)
Advances in space science and technology have enabled humanity to reach a stage where we are able to send manned and unmanned vehicles to explore nearby planets. However, given key differences between terrestrial and space ...
Shape Based Object Recognition Using a Fast Analog Convolution Processor
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000-12)
Upper Limb Rehabilitation and Evaluation of Children Using a Humanoid Robot
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-11)
This paper discusses a preliminary approach to matching child movements with robotic movements for the purpose of evaluating child upper limb rehabilitation exercises. Utilizing existing algorithms termed Motion History ...
Automatic Generation of Persistent Formations for Multi-Agent Networks Under Range Constraints
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-04)
In this paper we present a collection of graphbased methods for determining if a team of mobile robots, subjected to sensor and communication range constraints, can persistently achieve a specified formation. What we mean ...
To Encourage and Excite the Next Generation of Engineers through Human-Robot Interaction Projects for Space Exploration
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-06)
The robotics field represents the integration of multiple facets of engineering and science – from mechanical construction to intelligence programming to science data analysis. It is an ideal opportunity to showcase the ...
Global and Regional Path Planners for Integrated Planning and Navigation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-12)
This paper presents a hierarchical strategy for field mobile robots that incorporates path planning at different ranges. At the top layer is a global path planner that utilizes gross terrain characteristics, such as hills ...
