Three members of the Interactive Robotics Group --- Ankit Shah, Brad Hayes and Pem Lasota --- are presenting their work at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Stockholm, Sweden this week.
Przemyslaw "Pem" Lasota will be presenting his work at the Workshop on Human-Robot Interfaces for Enhanced Physical Interactions. He will present his progress towards developing a generalizable framework for human motion prediction using ensembles of predictors. His presentation will be on Monday, May 16th at 3:40pm. You can read the paper here.
Ankit Shah will be presenting his paper at the main conference on Thursday, May 19th at 8:50am. Ankit addresses the problem of manipulation planning for deformable linear objects, such as cables. The proposed approach efficiently computes cable shape in the presence of gravity and handles multiple interlinked cables. The efficacy of the planning algorithm is demonstrated for an application in airplane final assembly. You can read the paper here.
