Task 1: Interactive Object Learning ++
Contributors (alphabetical order): (Alessandro, Lorenzo, Ugo, Vadim)
The interactive object learning demonstration could be improved in many ways:
Subtask 1.1: Add some human-robot interaction components
- Look around to gaze at people (Reza's work)
- Learn and recognize faces with a more natural robot interaction (Vadim's work)
Subtask 1.2: Smartphone in the loop
Contributors (alphabetical order): (Alessandro, Francesco R., Vadim) This also links to SubTask 3.2
- Speech analysis and send commands to the robot
- Object recognition
Task 2: Evaluate real-time extensions in complex motor control tasks
Contributors: Ali, Lorenzo, Silvio?, Francesco(?), Luca?, Enrico?
Robots: iCub & Coman
Subtask 2.1 Perform fine tuning of control loops in complex tasks using real-time extensions in YARP
Subtask 2.2 This discussion also involves the design and development of a real-time execution layer for the robotinterface
Task 3: Improve the platform as we know it
Subtask 3.1 Improve Gazebo Simulator
Add a full simulation of the eyes' system
The iCub Gazebo simulation is currently lacking a way of simulating the moving eyes of iCub.
Further details on this task can be found in https://github.com/robotology/gazebo-yarp-plugins/issues/149 .
Add a full simulation of the hands' system
Add world interface
iCub_SIM has an handy yarp RPC interface for creating/deleting objects.
It would be nice to have a similar interface in Gazebo, for more info please check https://github.com/robotology/gazebo-yarp-plugins/issues/159 .
