CNR 2016: Lectures: Sven Stumm (GER): Towards synthesis of human and robotic work through haptic programming and interactive learning
Within the talk we show that with the right tools it is possible for Humans to adapt quite quickly to this and find their way around the machine. However the processes on the robotics side are still quite static and restrictive. For this reason we will show first experiences with our new concept for "haptic programming" , which allows the robot as well as the user to gain experience within the execution of different tasks, without losing already existing capabilities.
Accepting the restrictions on the side of the robot and communicating these visually can improve the human experience of robotics, when working together. Moreover the robot is able to lead the user along its task, which helps humans to understand the tasks as well as the capabilities and restrictions of the robot directly and can therefore be naturally used to improve knowledge.
Bio: Sven Stumm studied computer sciences at TU Dortmund University finishing his diploma in 2011 with the focus on intelligent systems, while working in software development for mobile robotics as a student assistant. In 2012 he started his professional career as a team member at the chair for Industrial Robotics and Production Automation at TU Dortmund University and focused on research in the field of industrial robotics, as well as process planning. In early 2015 he joined the Association for Robots in Architecture co-founded by Sigrid Brell-Cokcan and Johannes Braumann and is currently leading the robotic programming research team at the chair for Individualized Production in architecture at RWTH Aachen University, founded by Sigrid Brell-Cokcan in March 2015. The new chair for Individualized Production in architecture is pioneering the field of haptic programming that allows for intuitive control of robotic assistant.
Within the project DIANA - Dynamic Interactive robotic Assistant for Novel Applications Sven Stumm was leading the team to develop new concepts for working with a robot on site without prior knowledge of robotics. Combining a priori knowledge with on-site adaptation through collaboration the user guides the robot and is simultaneously guided by the robot, which leads to new experiences and knowledge on both the robot as well as the human side. Sven Stumm's experience further extends on human-robot collaboration as well as sensor data processing and probabilistic modelling in robotics.
