We have four new papers available this month! We have one paper on pushing under uncertainty accepted to the next WAFR (México, 2018), and three new papers on planning for comfort HRI and planning under clutter and uncertainty accepted to IEEE-RAS Humanoids 2018! You can meet the authors at WAFR (Merida, Mexico) and Humanoids-18 (Beijing, China), but in the meantime, you can find the papers in ArXiv: (arxiv.org/abs/1807.09049), (arxiv.org/abs/1807.11323, arxiv.org/abs/1805.03005, arxiv.org/abs/1803.08100). Please check the videos at the video session as well.
Our paper on manipulation planning for human-robot collaboration is accepted to IEEE/RSJ IROS 2018. Congratulations to the lead author: Lipeng Chen!
