Localization Using Magnetic Field Distortions

from: Leif Christensen  (DFKI GmbH)
Current localization algorithms are prone to failure in demanding environments due to restrictions imposed by the commonly applied sensor techniques. For example, GPS-based localization fails in indoor environments or under water, vision-based sensors fail in difficult lightning conditions, etc. The…

Learning Reusable, Versatilely Applicable Skills

from: Alexander Fabisch  (Uni Bremen AG Robotik)
Recently proposed algorithms for contextual policy search can be used to learn behavioral building blocks that generalize over a fixed set of task parameters even in complex robotic domains. In this talk, I will show how this can be useful for autonomous robots, summarize the state of the art, point…

Reconfigurable wheel-on-leg rovers provide an effective solution for addressing traversability problems in Martian analogue environments. Soft soil and step obstacles larger than a rover's wheel diameter are significant impediments that can be more easily overcome with an actively articulated mobili…

Underwater Multimodal 3D Reconstruction

from: Alexander Duda  (DFKI GmbH)
Underwater inspection of man made objects and mapping of marine habitats would greatly benefit from accurate underwater 3D sensing. To improve the resolution and robustness of camera or sonar based 3D reconstructions a new combined method is proposed fusing Structure from Motion with Structured Ligh…

Robotic manipulators have been playing an important role in human spaceflight activities since the 1980s. Nevertheless, an unmanned and completely autonomous robotic system, capable of capturing and manipulating a target has yet to become reality, despite several successfuldemonstration missions, su…

Whole body control (WBC) is a robot control method that targets robotic systems with many degrees of freedom and tasks with multiple, concurrent objectives in dynamically changing environments. In WBC, robot tasks are described by combinations of simple, generic task descriptors, which are usually s…

The central idea of this research is to formalize how and why an Internal complex Simulation (IS) is useful in the context of autonomous robotics. Some cognitive scientists have researched on the idea of the brain being an internal simulator to explain thinking [1, 2]. This research aims to formally…

Project BesMan - Current Status

from: José de Gea Fernández  (DFKI GmbH)
The main goal of the project is the development of generic robot software components for robotic manipulation as well as the learning of new situation-specific behaviours both for its use in robotic manipulators of different morphology. A set of generic behaviour templates are stored on the robot fo…

ScienceOpen - Rethinking Scientific Publishing

from: Dr. Sebastian Alers  (ScienceOpen GmbH)
ScienceOpen is a research and publishing network that aims to break some publishing paradigms. It is a freely accessible online platform to share and evaluate scientific information. Manuscripts submitted to ScienceOpen are published open access and evaluated afterwards, in a fully transparent Post-…
