Grants with Industry
Freek Stulp is collaborating with Pal Robotics in Barcelona to implement and evaluate the use of Dynamic Motion Primitives on the commercial mobile platform 'Reem '. A particular focus of this project is to compare the respective advantages of motion primitives and sampling-based motion planning approaches in the context of human-robot interaction. We intend to submit this work to the International Journal of Robotics Research, for a special issue on “Motion Planning for Physical Robots”. Pal Robotics is supporting Freek Stulp by co-financing travel costs for regular project meetings in Barcelona.
Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain:
The team has been collaborating with Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain in the context of the elaboration of the exhibition “Mathematical: A Beautiful Elsewhere” (http://fondation.cartier.com ), to be held from October 2011 to March 2012, as well as with artist David Lynch, to build the robotic installation/experiment Ergo-Robots/FLOWERS Fields. This robotic installation illustrates, as well as allows to experiment in a realistic setup on the long term, computational models of curiosity-driven learning, human-robot interaction and language formation. Fondation Cartier participated to the funding of this experiment/installation. A dedicated web page is available at: http://flowers.inria.fr/ergo-robots.php
