Robotics Student Seminar
Active Perception on Humanoids and Quadrotors
Nitin Sanket and Chahat Singh
PhD Students, Computer Science Department
Advisor: Professor Yiannis Aloimonos
In our lab, we work on active and bio-inspired perception and we test our theories by developing implementations in robotic systems, specifically humanoid robots, and autonomous quadrotors. In this way, we need to develop an integration of perception, with control, planning, reasoning and language in new cognitive architectures. A long-term goal in the Lab is the understanding of human activity. This led to the development of grammars for action which opened a new way for imitation learning in robotics, where learning happens at the level of the sub-goals in the action and not only at the level of the movement.

We'll have a lab tour after the talk which should take approximately 30mins.
About the Robotics Student Seminars
The Robotics Student Seminars at the University of Maryland College Park are a student-run series of talks given by current robotics students.
The purpose of these talks is to:
- Encourage interaction between Robotics students from different subfields;
- Provide an opportunity for Robotics students to be aware of and possibly get involved in the research their peers are conducting;
- Provide an opportunity for Robotics students to receive feedback on their current research;
- Provide speaking opportunities for Robotics students.
