The robotic manipulation of composite rigid-deformable objects (i.e., those with mixed nonhomogeneous stiffness properties) is a challenging problem with clear practical applications that, despite the recent progress in the field, it has not been sufficiently studied in the literature. To deal with this issue, in this article, we propose a...

Autonomous mobile robots require accurate human motion predictions to safely and efficiently navigate among pedestrians, whose behavior may adapt to environmental changes. This paper introduces a self-supervised continual learning framework to improve data-driven pedestrian prediction models online across various scenarios continuously. In...

Current ongoing industry revolution demands more flexible products, including robots in household environments and medium-scale factories. Such robots should be able to adapt to new conditions and environments and be programmed with ease. As an example, let us suppose that there are robot manipulators working on an industrial production line and...

Relying on static representations of the environment limits the use of mapping methods in most real-world tasks. Real-world environments are dynamic and undergo changes that need to be handled through map adaptation. In this work, an object-based pose graph is proposed to solve the problem of mapping in indoor dynamic environments with mobile...

<br/>Many market research agencies and consulting firms claim the robotics service and consumer market is about to boom. Market reports show there’s a massive, untapped market for robots to be used in commercial spaces such as hotels, restaurants, fast-foods and cruise ships. These spaces could serve as a great stepping stone on the path toward...

A major societal challenge in occidental countries nowadays is the continuously increasing ageing population. Due to this ageing society, solutions are needed to alleviate the limited care personnel and the ever increasing healthcare costs. To this end, service robots are proposed to meet this demand by assisting the elderly with their daily...

Novel robot technologies are becoming available to automate more complex tasks, more flexibly, and collaborating with humans. Methods and tools are needed in the automation and robotics industry to develop and integrate this new breed of robotic systems. In this paper, the ISE&amp;PPOOA methodology for Model-Based Systems Engineering is...

The research interests and applicability of robotics have diversified and seen a<br/>tremendous growth in recent years. There has been a shift from industrial robots operating in constrained settings to consumer robots working in dynamic environments associated closely with everyday human activities. Personal service robots to assist elderly,...
