Description

Tariq Iqbal, an assistant professor of systems engineering and computer science at the University of Virginia, will give a talk titled "Toward Fluent Collaboration in Human-Robot Teams" for the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics.

Please attend the event by using the Zoom link.

Abstract:

Robots currently have the capacity to help people in several fields, including health care, assisted living, and manufacturing, where the robots must share physical space and actively interact with people in teams. The performance of these teams depends upon how fluently all team members can jointly perform their tasks. To be successful within a group, a robot requires the ability to perceive other members' actions, model interaction dynamics, predict future actions, and adapt their plans accordingly in real-time. In the Collaborative Robotics Lab (CRL), we develop novel perception, prediction, and planning algorithms for robots to fluently coordinate and collaborate with people in complex human environments. In this talk, I will highlight various challenges of deploying robots in real-world settings and present our recent work to tackle several of these challenges.
