Rosbridge: ROS for Non-ROS Users
TLDR
We present rosbridge, a middleware abstraction layer which provides robotics technology with a standard, minimalist applications development framework accessible to applications programmers who are not themselves roboticists. Expand

Learning and generalization of complex tasks from unstructured demonstrations
TLDR
We present a novel method for segmenting demonstrations, recognizing repeated skills, and generalizing complex tasks from unstructured demonstrations that combines many of the advantages of recent automatic segmentation methods for learning from demonstration into a single principled, integrated framework.

Incremental Semantically Grounded Learning from Demonstration
TLDR
We introduce a novel method for discovering semantically grounded primitives and incrementally building and improving a finite-state representation of a task in which various contingencies can arise. Expand

Learning from demonstration using a multi-valued function regressor for time-series data
TLDR
We propose a multi-valued function regressor to learn a larger class of robot control policies from human demonstration and extend the Hierarchical Dirichlet Process Hidden Markov Model. Expand

ROS and Rosbridge: Roboticists out of the loop
TLDR
The advent of ROS, the Robot Operating System, has finally made it possible to implement and use state-of-the-art navigation and manipulation algorithms on widely-available, inexpensive standard robot platforms. Expand
