Abstract:

This Phase II project will extend prototypes and algorithms developed in Phase I for software-based modules for multi-modal command and control of robots using the various sensors and camera hardware on modern handheld devices, i.e. smartphones. Phase I work saw the successful development of new gesture and speech-based control interfaces for driving, manipulation, and surveillance. Phase II work will see the inclusion of advanced artificial intelligence algorithms for task-level supervised autonomy (and the appropriate interface approaches) into these control modules.
