See and touch: Visio-haptic control for safe human robot interaction
BY Andrea Cherubini, Associate Professor at Université de Montpellier and Researcher at LIRMM IDH (Interactive Digital Humans Group)
November 2, 2016 – h 11:30 am – 12:30 am
Blue Room – TeCIP Institute
This talk sums up the main achievements in our endeavor to embed humanoid robot with multi-contact, non-gaited motion behaviors in confined spaces. We will discuss the fundamental bases in planning and model-based optimization techniques with or without model reduction to solve multi-contact problems.
Andrea Cherubini is Associate Professor at Université de Montpellier and Researcher at LIRMM IDH (Interactive Digital Humans Group) since 2011. He received an MSc in 2001 from the University of Rome « La Sapienza » and a second one in 2003 from the University of Sheffield, U.K. From 2004 to 2008, he was PhD student, and then Postdoctoral fellow, at the Dipartimento di Informatica e Sistemistica (now DIAG), University of Rome « La Sapienza ». Then, from 2008 to 2011, he worked as PostDoc at INRIA Rennes. With IDH, he was involved in European projects VERE and RoboHow.Cog, and in the French Project ANR ICARO. His main research interests include sensor-based control, humanoid robotics, and human-robot interaction. This research is targeted by the French projects CoBot@LR and ANR SISCOB, and by the European project H2020 VERSATILE, all of which he manages as Principal Investigator at LIRMM.
