Goal-directed, Adaptive Builder Robots

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics Developing biologically-constrained architectures for adaptive service robots, with unprecedented levels of goal-directedness and proactivity The Goal-Leaders project aims at developing biologically-constrained architectures for the next generation of adaptive service robots, with unprecedented levels of goal-directedness and proactivity. Goal-Leaders will realize builder robots able to realize externally assigned tasks (e.g., fetching objects, composing building parts) and, at the same time, keeping their drives within a safe range (e.g., never end up without energy or get hurt), by operating autonomously and for prolonged periods of time in open-ended environments. This robotic design methodology will have a significant impact both for the understanding of goal-directed action in living organisms and for the realization of goal-directed service robots by combining navigation and manipulation within an unconstrained environment.
