Experimenting extended neglect tolerance model for human robot interactions in service missions
TLDR
In this paper, we validate the extended neglect tolerance model for estimation of human robot team performance in relation to robot autonomy and compare its results with the traditionally adopted neglectolerance model which assumes zero false alarms in human robot interactions. Expand

Robot-Assisted Therapy for Learning and Social Interaction of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
This paper puts forward the potential for designing a parrot-inspired robot and an indirect teaching technique, the adapted model-rival method (AMRM), to help improve learning and social interaction abilities of children with autism spectrum disorder. Expand

Complete coverage path planning using reinforcement learning for Tetromino based cleaning and maintenance robot
TLDR
This paper proposes a complete coverage path planning (CCPP) model trained using deep blackreinforcement learning (RL) for the tetromino based reconfigurable robot platform called hTetro to simultaneously generate the optimal set of shapes for any pretrained arbitrary environment shape with a trajectory that has the least overall cost.

Four-wheel steering and driving mechanism for a reconfigurable floor cleaning robot
TLDR
This paper is aimed to validate whether a four wheel independently-controlled steering and driving (4WISD) mechanism can provide an effective solution for high maneuverability of the robot and can serve as single mechanism for locomotion and transformation with a control strategy. Expand
