This project will investigate the benefits of adding an intelligent agent based on a mobile platform with a dexterous arm (Hello Robot - Stretch 2) for searching, detecting and grasping objects within an assistive apartment setup. The aim is that another entity, human or non-human, can make queries to the agent about the presence of certain objects within the apartment, and ask the robot to pick them up and place them somewhere else. The project will study the current state of the art in robot planning under uncertainty that can solve this type of problem, evaluate the different techniques and implement the best solution.

The work is under the scope of the following projects:
