ISLab - Intelligent Systems Lab (ISR/IST, TULisbon) I'm interested in Cognitive Science and Robotics. My goal at the VVV'10 Summer School is to implement a proof-of-concept for a online event segmentation (and adaptive strong adaptation) framework (for more details click here). The result should be the iCub following a ball (on a series of inclined planes, maybe on a pendulum) with its head - do any of you guys have a colored ball? Email: bnery <at> isr.ist.utl.pt Homepage
I love robots, and during my PhD I have worked together with different ones: started with medium-sized league RoboCup robots, then a big B21 robot with two industry 6-DOF arms (Powercubes from Amtec), and finally have the pleasure of working with the iCub and our self-made platform with Kuka LWR-4 arms and 4-Fingered hands from the DLR. TUM-Rosie in action I have concentrated in arm/hand movements for grasping. Lately concentrating on grasping unmodeled objects, using a Mesa SR4k time of flight camera, and finger torque sensors to adjust the grasp. This is a video that we submitted to IROS2010 together with a paper: [link to youtube] For the summer school, I am interested two-handed manipulation with the iCub. One idea for the demo is to build stacks of Lego pieces. Please let me know if you would like to do something in this direction (Manipulation, reaching, tool use). maldonad_(at)_cs.tum.edu Introduction (pdf file) work-homepage

We implemented a potencial field base end-effector arm movement system. It can avoid obstacles and follow goal points and orientations, also supports the concept of tools connected in the end-effector, and also one can control the velocity null space. We want to extend this system to deal with two arms and also the torso. Maybe with this we can do some two handed manipulation. We need some vision people to help us! I'm pretty sure this will be a Summer School as "Pura Vida!" as the last one. email: ruizf<AT>in.tum.de pdf file for instant messaging: memeruiz<at>gmail.com homepage
