Dextrous Assembler Robot Working with embodied INtelligence

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics Targeting both <strong>assembly</strong> and <strong>service industry</strong>, the DARWIN project aims to develop an "<strong>acting, learning and reasoning</strong>" assembler robot that will ultimately be capable of assembling <strong>complex objects</strong> from its constituent parts. First steps will also be taken to explore the general <strong>reparation</strong> problem. Functionally the robotic artefact will operate in three modes: <strong>slave</strong>, <strong>semi-autonomous</strong>, <strong>fully autonomous</strong> mode. <br /><strong>Categorization</strong>, object <strong>affordances</strong>, accurate <strong>manipulation</strong> and discovery of the <strong>naive physics</strong> will be acquired <strong>gradually</strong> by the robot. The <strong>reasoning system</strong> will exploit all these experiences in order to allow the robot to go <strong>beyond experience</strong> when confronted with <strong>novel situations</strong>.<br /><style type="text/css">body {\\tbackground: #FFF;}</style>
