In the paper "Learning Causal Relationships of Object Properties and Affordances Through Human Demonstrations and Self-Supervised Intervention for Purposeful Action in Transfer Environments", we present a new method for learning causal relationships between object properties and object affordances…

The paper "Preemptive Foot Compliance to Lower Impact During Biped Robot Walking Over Unknown Terrain" presents a novel method for ankle/foot compliance for biped humanoid robots walking over uneven terrain. Based on distributed plantar proximity sensing, we developed the Preemptive Foot Compliance…

We congratulate especially warmly Dr.-Ing. Quentin Leboutet! He defended his thesis on "Enhanced Robot Compliance, State Estimation and Identification using Distributed Tactile Feedback: Leveraging Redundancy and Multimodality" last Friday! Thanks to the committee chaired by Prof. UIf Schlichtmann,…

The video for the paper "Optimal Order Pick-and-Place of Objects in Cluttered Scene by a Mobile Manipulator" is now on our YouTube channel. The paper shows a fast method for autonomously planning manipulation tasks for mobile manipulators using the Human Support Robot (HSR). F. Wang, J. R. G.…

This semester's last research seminar will be on "COMPAS: Compiler-Assisted Software-Implemented Hardware Fault Tolerance for RISC-V" by Uzair Sharif, TUM Chair of Electronic Design Automation (Prof. Schlichtmann). Abstract: Safety-critical systems have to ensure safe operation in the face of…
