Framing Human-Robot Task Communication as a Partially Observable Markov Decision Process
As general purpose robots become more capable, pre-programming of all tasks at the factory will become less practical. We would like for non-technical human owners to be able to communicate, through interaction with their ...
Mechanical Intelligence in Millimeter-Scale Machines
Advances in millimeter-scale fabrication processes have enabled rapid progress towards the development of flapping wing micro air vehicles with wing spans of several centimeters and a system mass on the order of 100mg. ...
Roll, Pitch and Yaw Torque Control for a Robotic Bee
In the last decade, the robotics community has pushed to develop increasingly small, autonomous flapping-wing robotic vehicles for a variety of civilian and military applications. The miniaturization of these vehicles has ...
Robotic Catheters for Beating Heart Surgery
Compliant and flexible cardiac catheters provide direct access to the inside of the heart via the vascular system without requiring clinicians to stop the heart or open the chest. However, the fast motion of the intracardiac ...
