Intelligent observation and execution of Actions and manipulations

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics understanding and exploiting the meaning (semantics) of manipulations in terms of objects, actions and their consequences for reproducing human actions with machines IntellAct addresses the problem of understanding and exploiting the meaning (semantics) of manipulations in terms of objects, actions and their consequences for reproducing human actions with machines. This is in particular required for the interaction between humans and robots in which the robot has to understand the human action and then to transfer it to its own embodiment. IntellAct will provide means to allow for this transfer not by copying movements of the human but by transferring the human action on a semantic level. Two major application areas are addressed by IntellAct: the monitoring of human manipulations for correctness and the efficient teaching of cognitive robots to perform manipulations in a wide variety of applications.
