TOpology based Motion SYnthesis for dexterous manipulation

Project description


Cognitive Systems and Robotics

The goal of TOMSY is to enable a generational leap in the techniques and scalability of motion synthesis systems. Motion synthesis is a key component of future robotic and cognitive systems to enable their physical interaction with humans and physical manipulation of their environment. Existing motion synthesis algorithms are severely limited in their ability to cope with real-world objects such as flexible objects or objects with many degrees of freedom. TOMSY propose to solve these problems by learning and exploiting appropriate topological representations and testing them on challenging domains of flexible, multi-object manipulation and close contact robot control and computer animation. The results of this project provide the necessary key technologies for future robots and computer vision systems to enable fluent interaction with their environment.
