This paper proposes a method for interactive recognition of household objects by a robot using proprioceptive feedback. In our experiments, the robot observed the changes in its proprioceptive stream while performing five exploratory behaviors (lift, shake, drop, crush, and push) on 50 common household objects (e.g., bottles, cans, balls, toys, etc.).(More)
This paper proposes a method for interactive recognition of household objects using proprioceptive and auditory feedback. In our experiments, the robot observed the changes in its proprioceptive and auditory sensory streams while performing five exploratory behaviors (lift, shake, drop, crush, and push) on 50 common household objects (e.g., bottles, cups,(More)
DNA nanotechnology uses the information processing capabilities of nucleic acids to design self-assembling, programmable structures and devices at the nanoscale. Devices developed to date have been programmed to implement logic circuits and neural networks, capture or release specific molecules, and traverse molecular tracks and mazes. Here we investigate(More)
This paper proposes a system for interactive multimodal recognition of household objects by a robot. Robots will need as many senses as possible in order to interact with these objects in our humanoid environments. A robot was equipped to observe both proprioceptive and auditory sensory input while performing five different behaviors on the objects in its(More)
