The aim of this thesis is to set a mathematical framework useful for cloth representation. It will focus on the development of algorithms for the effective calculation of Algebraic Topology invariants, and on their application for the representation of topological characteristics of clothing that are relevant to its robotic manipulation.

The work is under the scope of the following projects:

  • CLOTHILDE: Cloth manipulation learning from demonstration (web)
