Themes

Observation model construction for active object recognition problem

We are studying about environment recognition technology required for robots working in real environments. As one example, we focus on the object recognition problem. In general, the observation model which represents the relationship between the environment and sensor information is required for efficient recognition. We are developing a machine learning scheme to learn such models from sensor data.

Robot’s motion planning with optimal control and information theoretic criteria

When the robot recognizes the environment by obtaining the information from the tactile sensor mounted on the fingertip, it is important to realize the touch which considers not only efficiency for reduction of uncertainty of the recognition but also compliance for object. We are developing such robot’s control scheme for the optimal active exploration.
