Humanlike Enveloping Grasps
Brief description: We are interested in planning
grasping and manipulation tasks for animated characters and robots. In
our approach, we take advantage of the rich set of information included
in human demonstrations. To "reuse" a human demonstration, we
must extract its important elements (e.g., how force is applied to an
object to tilt it onto its side) and adapt the demonstration appropriately
to new situations.
REU logistics: Individual research within the graphics group.
