Mobile Platform for CoTeSys (MuCAR-3)

Mobile Platform for CoTeSys (MuCAR-3)

Inspired by human navigation behavior, characterized by object-related plans and a close coupling between perception and action selection, a new approach for autonomous robot navigation is developed. Duration: 01.2009-01.2011 [more]

What to do next – Adaptation in manual assembly

Adaptive Cognitive Interaction in Production Environments

Focusing on human manual workplaces in the Cognitive Factory, the ACIPE-project aims at creating an assistive system which is able to give the worker needed information in intuitive ways at the right time and therefore enables a naturalistic interaction between the worker and his environment. Duration: 01.2009-12.2010 [more]

Cognitive Perception for every day manipulation

Cognitive Perception for every day manipulation

The project aims at the unification of computer vision and laser-based sensing in the CoP (Cognitive Perception) with learning and planning system (Knowledge4Cotesys, Cogito). On the one hand, CoP manages the interpretation of outputs of different kinds of sensors and on the other hand it automatically acquires and maintains the knowledge about the world and the objects therein. CoP selects sensors and data interpretation algorithms based on their expected utility. To this end, CoP learns and improves inter-sensor and inter-algorithmic models for methods selection from experience. The camera based vision system in particular (the mostly used one), provides several automatic model improving techniques. Improved models accelerate the perception process and thus significantly improve the robustness. Duration: 01.2009-12.2009 [more]

Cognitive Perception for Everyday Manipulation Activities in Human Environment

Cognitive Perception for Everyday Manipulation Activities in Human Environment

The project aims at the unification of vision-based sensing in the CoP (Cognitive Perception) learning and planning system. On the one hand, CoP manages the interpretation of different kinds of sensors and on the other hand it automatically acquires and maintains the knowledge about the world and objects in the world.
