Cognitive Systems and Robotics
System design to assist and interact with individual human activity, particularly that concerns with task solving and hand manipulation of objects and tools
The automatic capture, recognition and rendering of human sensory-motor activities represent essential technologies in many diverse applications. Current capture systems focus primarily on capturing raw motion data that is organised as a single cinematic sequence, with little or no reference to the underlying task activity or workflow patterns exhibited by the human subject.
The aim of the COGNITO project is to develop novel techniques that will allow cognitive workflow patterns to be analysed, learnt, recorded and subsequently rendered in a user-adaptive manner. COGNITO will map and closely couple both the afferent and efferent channels of the human subject, enabling activity data to be linked directly to workflow patterns and task completion. The focus will be on tasks involving the hand manipulation of objects and tools due to their importance in many industrial applications.
