GeRT - Generalising Robot Manipulation Tasks

GeRT - Generalising Robot Manipulation Tasks

This video was recorded at 5th International Conference on Cognitive Systems 2012, Vienna. The overall aim of the GeRT project is to enable a robot to autonomously generalise its manipulation skills from a set of known objects to previously un-manipulated objects in order to achieve an everyday manipulation task. Specifically, the project is working towards enabling a robot to generalize from known object instances to previously unseen objects drawn from the same class. In addition we are trying to marry low level robotic control with high level AI planning approaches to enable the robot to reason about how the overall task should influence manipulations of individual objects. The result will be a robot system able to manipulate previously unseen objects to achieve an everyday task, such as making a drink.
