Supporting humans in the kitchen is a difficult task for a humanoid robot. This study focuses on one of the tasks identified in the HUMABOT Challenge, finding a tomato in a kitchen environment and grabbing it from the table. Three detection algorithms are evaluated on their performance to find the tomato without confusion with other vegetables present in the kitchen. Once found, the location of the tomato relative to the humanoid robot is estimated. A planning algorithm is then used to grab the…

Analysis of Atomic Manipulation Tasks in Human-Shared Scenarios (A Kitchen and A Collaborative Workshop Table) for a Humanoid Robot
TLDR
The vocabulary of an action description language to be used, together with a low level object controller, by a humanoid robot in two specific scenarios: a kitchen and a collaborative workshop table is analyzed.
Robotic architecture to map an action language to a low level motion commands for skillful manipulation
TLDR
How specific complex tasks can be resolved by this robotic architecture meant for skillful manipulation is discussed; the affordance unit design is analyzed; and the future challenges in the implemenation of the whole system are overviewed.
A Comparison of Decision Trees for Ingredient Classification
TLDR
Two decision trees for classification of fruits and vegetables are compared and a tree with non-binary splits based on the object’s features(color and shape) was found to be most effective, as it performed much faster and exhibited more stability than its ingredientbased counterpart.
