Der lunare Mikro-Rover im Projekt SAMLER-KI muss semiautonom in einer herausfordernden und potenziell riskanten Umgebung auf dem Mond agieren. Diese Arbeit konzentriert sich darauf, ein Gefahrenerkennungs- und -vermeidungssystem zu entwickeln, das dem Rover ermöglicht, auf der Mondoberfläche effizie…

Eine wiederkehrende Herausforderung bei Exoskeletten ist die Übertragung von Kräften und Momenten entlang virtueller Achsen, welche sich im menschlichen Körper befinden. Ein Beispiel hierfür ist die Rotation des Beines um dessen Längsachse. Dieser Freiheitsgrad wird von vielen Exoskeletten nicht abg…

Ambient Air Pollution Prediction

from: Hannes Gelbhardt  (Universität Bremen)
Accurately predicting air pollutant concentration remains challenging but essen- tial in preventing the public from being exposed to high concentrations that lead to several hundred thousand premature deaths across Europe yearly (European Environment Agency, 2023). This research focuses on enhanci…

Multi-agent deep reinforcement learning (MADRL) is a powerful approach that enables agents to coordinate and collaborate to solve complex collaborative tasks. Applications of MADRL range from robotics to traffic control and resource allocation. However, the learning process can be slow, especially w…

Cosserat Rod-based Kinetostatic Analysis of a 6-RUS Parallel Continuum Robot

from: Vinayvivian Pedrick Rodrigues  (RWTH Aachen)
Continuum manipulators have historically been considered serial devices, perhaps because they typically have a long slender form, and the dominant geometric modeling paradigm is constant curvature arc segments tangentially connected in series. However, as some researchers have noted, many continuum …

Learning robot behaviors in simulation has the advantages of being faster, safer and cheaper than learning on a real system. In exchange, the problem of Simulation Optimization Bias is introduced, which is caused by discrepancies between the model and the real system, commonly referred to as the Sim…

Visual Voice Activity Detection (V-VAD) is the task to determine whether a person is speaking, based on images or video footage. It is a central point in Human Computer Interaction, as it is one of the first signals that can indicate that a human is interacting with a computer. Two new big datasets…

Online Terrain Traversability Estimation for Wheel-Legged Rover Exploration

from: Yogeshkarna Govindaraj  (Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg)
In robotics, traversability, the ability of a robot to navigate challenging terrains, remains a significant challenge due to limitations in design, perception, and computation. The hybrid wheel-legged design, exemplified by the SherpaTT rover, offers enhanced mobility in unstructured terrain. Curren…
