Closed-Loop Global Motion Planning for Reactive, Collision-Free Execution of Learned Tasks
Chris Bowen, Ron Alterovitz
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/3209045

We present a robot motion planning approach for performing a learned task while reacting to the movement of obstacles and task-relevant objects. We employ a closed-loop, sampling-based motion planner operating multiple times a second that senses...

Reframing Assistive Robots to Promote Successful Aging
Hee Rin Lee, Laurel D. Riek
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/3203303

We are living in an exciting time, as people are living longer, more active lives. This is reshaping how we think about aging. Rather than viewing aging as a problem to be fixed (i.e., a deficit model of aging), many aging researchers are viewing...

Adapting a General-Purpose Social Robot for Paediatric Rehabilitation through In Situ Design
Felip Martí Carrillo, Joanna Butchart, Sarah Knight, Adam Scheinberg, Lisa Wise, Leon Sterling, Chris McCarthy
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/3203304

Socially assistive robots (SARs) offer great promise for improving outcomes in paediatric rehabilitation. However, the design of software and interactive capabilities for SARs must be carefully considered in the context of their intended clinical...
