Description

The fine manipulation of garments requires complex skills. In the context of this Master thesis, the TIAGo robot will be used to assess the validity and precision of hand-eye transformations for the fine picking of garments, and new dynamic motions will be created to facilitate the unfoldeing of folded garments lying on a table.

The work is under the scope of the following projects:

  • CLOTHILDE: Cloth manipulation learning from demonstration (web)
  • HuMoUR: Markerless 3D human motion understanding for adaptive robot behavior (web)
