RoboCup: The Robot World Cup Initiative
The Robot World Cup Initiative (R, oboCup) is attempt to foster AI and intelligent rohoties research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies especially concerning multi-agentExpand
RoboCup: A Challenge Problem for AI
Technical challenges involved in RoboCup, rules, and the simulation environment are described, including design principles of autonomous agents, multiagent collaboration, strategy acquisition, real-time reasoning, robotics, and sensor fusion. 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
Learning by watching: extracting reusable task knowledge from visual observation of human performance
A novel task instruction method for future intelligent robots that learns reusable task plans by watching a human perform assembly tasks is presented, which results in a hierarchical task plan describing the higher level structure of the task. Expand
RoboCup: A Challenge Problem for AI and Robotics
Technical challenges involved in RoboCup, rules, and simulation environment are described and a software platform for research on the software aspects of RoboCups is offered. Expand
Cognitive developmental robotics as a new paradigm for the design of humanoid robots
CDR may provide ways of understanding human beings that go beyond the current level of explanation found in the natural and social sciences and hold promise because they have many degrees of freedom and sense modalities and must face the challenges of scalability that are often side- stepped in simpler domains. Expand
Conformable and scalable tactile sensor skin for curved surfaces
The design and realization of a conformable tactile sensor skin is presented, organized as a network of self-contained modules consisting of tiny pressure-sensitive elements which communicate through a serial bus. Expand
Discriminative spatial pyramid
Discriminative SPR is a new representation that forms the image feature as a weighted sum of semi-local features over all pyramid levels, which is compact and preserves high discriminative power, even in low dimension. Expand
Early motor development from partially ordered neural-body dynamics: experiments with a cortico-spinal-musculo-skeletal model
The results show the possibility that a rich variety of meaningful behavior can be discovered and acquired by the neural-body dynamics without pre-defined coordinated control circuits. Expand
Elastic Net Constraints for Shape Matching
This work considers a parametrized relaxation of the widely adopted quadratic assignment problem (QAP) formulation for minimum distortion correspondence between deformable shapes and introduces a weighting parameter on the combination of two existing relaxations, namely spectral and game-theoretic.
