Matěj Hoffmann presents AICZECHIA online seminar - Biologically inspired robot body models and self-calibration

Typically, mechanical design specifications provide the basis for a robot model
and kinematic and dynamic mappings are constructed and remain fixed during
operation. However, there are many sources of inaccuracies (e.g., assembly
process, mechanical elasticity, friction). Furthermore, with the advent of
collaborative, social, or soft robots, the stiffness of the materials and the
precision of the manufactured parts drops and CAD models provide a less
basis for the models. Humans, on the other hand, seamlessly control their
complex bodies, adapt to growth or failures, and use tools. Exploiting
multimodal sensory information plays a key part in these processes. In this
talk, I will establish differences between body representations in the brain
robot body models and assess the possibilities for learning robot models in
biologically inspired ways.
