The proposed visual servoing control scheme ensures the convergence of the image-features to desired trajectories, by using the estimated Jacobian matrix, which is proved by the Lyapunov stability theory. Expand
Cognitive Developmental Robotics: A Survey
Cognitive developmental robotics aims to provide new understanding of how human's higher cognitive functions develop by means of a synthetic approach that developmentally constructs cognitive functions through interactions with the environment, including other agents. Expand
Purposive Behavior Acquisition for a Real Robot by Vision-Based Reinforcement Learning
A method of vision-based reinforcement learning by which a robot learns to shoot a ball into a goal by using Learning from Easy Missions (or LEM), which reduces the learning time from exponential to almost linear order in the size of the state space. Expand
A constructive model for the development of joint attention
The experimental results show that the proposed model makes the robot reproduce the developmental process of infants' joint attention, which could be one of the models to explain how infants develop the ability of joint attention. Expand
Anthropomorphic robotic soft fingertip with randomly distributed receptors
Experimental results demonstrate the discriminating ability of the fingertip: it can discriminate five different materials by pushing and rubbing the objects. Expand
Cooperative Behavior Acquisition for Mobile Robots in Dynamically Changing Real Worlds Via Vision-Based Reinforcement Learning and Development
A vision-based reinforcement learning method that acquires cooperative behaviors in a dynamic environment using the robot soccer game initiated by RoboCup to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method. Expand
Learning for joint attention helped by functional development
Experiments reveal that the adaptive evaluation by the caregiver accelerates the robot's learning and that the visual development in the robot improves the accuracy of joint attention tasks due to its well-structured visuomotor mapping. Expand
Biped robot design powered by antagonistic pneumatic actuators for multi-modal locomotion
It is demonstrated how antagonistic pneumatic actuators can be utilized to achieve three dynamic locomotion modes (walking, jumping, and running) in a biped robot and it is concluded that the antagonists are superior candidates for constructing a human-like dynamic locomotor. Expand
Adaptive hybrid control for visual and force servoing in an unknown environment
Experimental results validate the proposed scheme and show that the controller needs no a priori knowledge besides the manipulator kinematics to achieve a contacting task with an unknown environment. Expand
Adaptive binocular visual servoing for independently moving target tracking
The basic ideas how the AVS method is extended such that it can track unknown moving objects are given and formalized into a new AVS system. Expand
