Robot manipulators are significantly more accurate than their human counterparts and enhance the repeatability of various tasks. However, manufactures still provide reduced information regarding the robot controller functions, typically affecting robots' predictability. Additionally, industrial examples show that system transparency could be...

Aerial physical interaction opens the door for many operations at height to be automatised using aerial robots. This research presents a novel manipulator design mounted on a traditional quadrotor, which utilises both mechanical and software compliance to perform physical interaction on vertical walls and overhanging surfaces, such as those...

In household and retail store environments, humans efficiently identify grasp regions of an object to perform everyday tasks. To enable robots to understand the requirements of a task and the properties of an object, a novel grasp framework, called the Shape Primitive and Reasoning Grasping Engine (SPaRGE), is proposed in this thesis. SPaRGE...

Many recent robot learning problems, real and simulated, were addressed using deep reinforcement learning. The developed policies can deal with high-dimensional, continuous state and action spaces, and can also incorporate machine-generated or human demonstration data. A great number of them depend on state-action value estimates, especially the...

Introduction: Although robotic-assisted surgery is increasingly performed, objective assessment of technical skills is lacking. The aim of this study is to provide validity evidence for objective assessment of technical skills for robotic-assisted surgery. Methods: An international multicenter study was conducted with participants from the...

In this article, we propose a hybrid combination of active inference and behavior trees (BTs) for reactive action planning and execution in dynamic environments, showing how robotic tasks can be formulated as a free-energy minimization problem. The proposed approach allows handling partially observable initial states and improves the...

This letter introduces a dataset for training and evaluating methods for 6D pose estimation of hand-held tools in task demonstrations captured by a standard RGB camera. Despite the significant progress of 6D pose estimation methods, their performance is usually limited for heavily occluded objects, which is a common case in imitation learning...

DNS is a protocol responsible for translating human-readable domain names into IP addresses. Despite being essential for many Internet services to work properly, it is inherently vulnerable to manipulation. In November 2021, users from Mexico received bogus DNS responses when resolving whatsapp.net. It appeared that a BGP route leak diverged DNS...

Deformable Object Manipulation (DOM) is an important field of research as it contributes to practical tasks such as cloth handling, cable routing, surgical operation etc. The sensing in DOM is now considered as one of the major challenges in robotics due to the complex dynamics and high degree of freedom of deformable objects. One challenge is...

Mobile robots are getting more common in warehouses, distribution centers and factories, where they are used to boost productivity. At the same time, they are moving into the everyday world, where they need to operate in uncontrolled and cluttered environments. In order to extend the set of tasks that a robot can autonomously accomplish in such...

Soft robots are made of compliant materials, which increase their flexibility but also presents modeling challenges. The difficulty mainly comes from material nonlinearity, infinite degrees of freedom, uncertain parameters, and complex calculations. This project uses physics-inspired neural networks to solve the last two problems. Based on the...

In this work, we present the ADAPT, a novel reconfigurable force-balanced parallel manipulator with pantograph legs for spatial motions applied underneath a drone. The reconfigurable aspect allows different motion-based 3-DoF operation modes like translational, rotational, mixed, planar without disassembly. For the purpose of this study, the...

Achieving human-like action planning requires profound reasoning and context-awareness capabilities. It is especially true for autonomous robotic mobile manipulation in dynamic environments. In the case of component failure, the autonomous robotic system requires reliable adaptation capabilities combined with a consistent understanding of the...

Data planes are responsible for forwarding packets in a network. The P4 language is used for programming programmable data planes. Such data planes give more flexibility to programmers by allowing them to define how the packets should be processed. However, these data planes might also be more vulnerable to malicious attacks than traditional ...

Walking is an essential part of almost all activities of daily living. Depending on the situation, different gait patterns can be observed, e.g., moving around the house, performing different sports, or even in case of injury. Even though the gait has been analyzed thoroughly for many decades, there are still some unexplored aspects that require...

The precise manipulation of particles and droplets is crucial to many microfluidic applications in engineering. The design of microfluidic devices is generally tailored to perform a specific task, with each specific application requiring a unique and fixed design. In this way, using a single device to perform multiple analyses of a wide range of...
