Behind the Scenes: Decoding Intent from First Person Video
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-02-01)
A first person video records not only what is out in the environment but also what is in our head (intention and attention) at the time via social and physical interactions. It is invisible but it can be revealed by ...
Persistent Environmental Monitoring: Robots That Seemingly Do Nothing Most of the Time
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-02-08)
By now, we have a fairly good understanding of how to design coordinated control strategies for making teams of mobile robots achieve geometric objectives in a distributed manner, such as assembling shapes or covering ...
Enhancing Human Capability with Intelligent Machine Teammates
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-02-22)
Every team has top performers - people who excel at working in a team to find the right solutions in complex, difficult situations. These top performers include nurses who run hospital floors, emergency response teams, ...
Shared Control of Functional Electrical Stimulation and an Electric Motor in a Hybrid Neuroprosthesis
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-03-08)
Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) can be used to artificially activate paralyzed lower limb muscles to restore walking and standing function in persons with neurological disorders. Despite its potential, FES-based ...
Examining the Slow, Noisy, and Complex Process of Technology Adoption
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-03-31)
Snakes and Spiders, Robots and Geometry
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-04-12)
Locomotion and perception are common threads between robotics and biology. Understanding these phenomena at a mechanical level involves nonlinear dynamics and the coordination of many degrees of freedom. In this talk, ...
Stochastic Models in Robotics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-04-20)
Many stochastic problems of interest in engineering and science involve random, rigid-body motions. In this talk, a variety of stochastic phenomena that evolve on the group of rigid-body motions will be discussed together ...
Autonomous, Agile, Vision‐Controlled Drones: From Frame to Event Vision
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-09-22)
Autonomous quadrotors will soon play a major role in search‐and‐rescue and remote‐inspection missions, where a fast response is crucial. Quadrotors have the potential to navigate quickly through unstructured environments, ...
Cyber Human Interaction: A Control Systems/Robotics Perspective on Functional Electrical Stimulation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-10-04)
Application of an electric field across skeletal muscle causes muscle contractions that produce limb movement. Clinicians have long prescribed electrical stimulation as a means to strengthen muscle; however, clinicians ...
The Evolution of Soft Robotics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-10-18)
The field of soft mechanisms and sensors provides an exciting opportunity for new hardware development in robotics, a field that is becoming more and more important. This talk describes the development of soft mechanisms, ...
