Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics Connecting robots world-wide The RoboEarth project exploits a new approach towards endowing robots with advanced perception and action capabilities, thus enabling robots to carrying out useful tasks autonomously in circumstances that were not planned at design time. RoboEarth is a world wide web-style database and will allow robots to share any reusable knowledge independent from their hardware and configuration. As a result of the proposed project, major innovations are expected in the fields of 3D sensing (object recognition and localization), control strategies (linking perception and action) and learning. Examples of demonstrators are presenting meal options and serving a drink to a patient in a hospital room.
