Navigation Approach for mobile Robots in social Environments

from: Saira Philip  (Universität Bremen)
Social Robots are designed to interact with humans in social environments. They are driven by emotional connections and social behavior. When interacting in a social environment, robots must consider human safety and comfort. Social Robots should be able to identify humans as social entities rather …

Zwischenbericht
In the recent decades, many missions have been undertaken to investigate Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons. It’s surface consists of a thick ice crust which covers a deep ocean underneath it. To inspect the ocean a system was conceptualized at DFKI Bremen which would drill through the ice and then depl…

Evaluation of metrics for human-like grips

from: Florian Seidler  (Universität Bremen)
To evaluate grasping metrics for human grasping, the poses of a human hand and an object grasped by the hand are detected. For this purpose, single view RGB images are processed. The poses as well as translations are estimated from images without depth information. For this purpose, a neural networ…

Real-time Dynamic Gesture Recognition for Human-Robot Collaboration

from: Shefali Dewangan  (Universität Bremen)
The primary goal of the thesis is to enhance human-robot collaboration by addressing the challenge of real-time dynamic gesture recognition. This initiative is a significant part of the ROMATRIS project, funded by THW at the DFKI, and the focus of the thesis is on the identification and real-ti…

Battery Simulation for the Robotic Exploration of Lunar Lava Tubes.

from: Rutendo Mutambara  (Constructor University)
Robotic systems need energy for general navigation and control of sensors and actuators, therefore it is important to monitor the system’s energy level for optimum performance. In addition, it is desirable to have the possibility of estimating the energy consumed by certain robotic operations given …

Control Strategies for a Rimless Wheel Micro-Rover

from: Dennis Schlee  (TU Darmstadt)
Rimless wheeled robots are a hybrid variant of traditionally wheeled and legged robots. These hybrid systems combine the benefits of both approaches, such as efficient power demands and good terrain traversability. However, the simplicity of the design of the rimless wheel has the disadvantage of li…

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 theytypically 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 d…

Kolloquium
As legged locomotion in nature is very dynamic and rich, this elegant art of motion should also be exploited by robots to enable efficient and unrestricted locomotion even on difficult terrain. To attain animal-like dynamic motions for underactuated robots, careful consideration and exploitation of …

Zwischenbericht
The challenge of controlling nonlinear systems has sparked significant interest within the research community. In particular, reinforcement learning-based control methods present promising advantages for addressing nonlinear control challenges, including reduced reliance on detailed system models an…
