EZ-Robot RGB Array Testing

 

 

Publicado el 13/05/2014

This is a sneak peek test video of the i2c rgb array module that is included in our JD robot head and rgb block.

The module animations are configured using our GUI RGB Animator in the software. Configure any combination of colors and transitions. The animations can be triggered by any event for your robot.

3D Estimation and Fully Automated Learning of Eye-Hand Coordination in Humanoid Robots

Publicado el 17/04/2014

This work deals with the problem of 3D estimation and eye-hand calibration in humanoid robots. Using the iCub humanoid robot, we developed a fully automatic procedure based on optimization techniques that does not require any human supervision. The end-effector of the humanoid robot is automatically detected in the stereo images. We demonstrate the usefulness and the effectiveness of the proposed system in two typical robotic scenarios: (1) object grasping; (2) 3D scene reconstruction.

Execution of Pushing Action with Semantic Event Chains: Icub Humanoid Robot First Integration

Publicado el 17/04/2014

Here we present the first integration of the framework for manipulation execution based on the so called “Semantic Event Chain” on the iCub robot. The Semantic Event Chain is an abstract description of relations between the objects in the scene. It captures the change of those relations during a manipulation and thereby provides the decisive temporal anchor points by which a manipulation is critically defined.

Enhancing Software module reusability using port plug-ins: an iCub humanoid robot

Systematically developing high–quality reusable software components is a difficult task and requires careful design to find a proper balance between potential reuse, functionalities and ease of implementation. Extendibility is an important property for software which helps to reduce cost of development and significantly boosts its reusability. This work introduces an approach to enhance components reusability by extending their functionalities using plug-ins at the level of the connection points (ports). Application dependent functionalities such as data monitoring and arbitration can be implemented using a conventional scripting language and plugged into the ports of components. The main advantage of our approach is that it avoids to introduce application dependent modifications to existing components, thus reducing development time and fostering the development of simpler and therefore more reusable components. Another advantage of our approach is that it reduces communication and deployment overheads because extra functionalities can be added without introducing additional modules. The video demonstrates the port plug-in in a clean the table scenario on the iCub Humanoid robot.
