Learning Association Fields from Natural Images
Found in: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshop
By Francesco Orabona, Giorgio Metta, Giulio Sandini
Issue Date:June 2006
pp. 174
Previous studies have shown that it is possible to learn certain properties of the responses of the neurons of the visual cortex, as for example the receptive fields of complex and simple cells, through the analysis of the statistics of natural images and ...
Object-based Visual Attention: a Model for a Behaving Robot
Found in: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshop
By Francesco Orabona, Giorgio Metta, Giulio Sandini
Issue Date:June 2005
pp. 89
<p>One of the first steps of any visual system is that of locating suitable interest points,
Wrist Coordination in a Kinematically Redundant Stabilization Task
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Haptics
By Lorenzo Masia,Valentina Squeri,Etienne Burdet,Giulio Sandini,Pietro Morasso
Issue Date:July 2012
pp. 231-239
We investigated how the control of a compliant object is realized by the redundancy of wrist anatomy. Subjects had to balance a one degree-of-freedom inverted pendulum using elastic linkages controlled by wrist flexion/extension (FE) and forearm pronation/...
Adaptive Training Strategy of Distal Movements by Means of a Wrist-Robot
Found in: International Conference on Advances in Computer-Human Interaction
By Lorenzo Masia, Nestor Nava Rodriguez, Maura Casadio, Pietro Morasso, Giulio Sandini, Psiche Giannoni
Issue Date:February 2009
pp. 227-233
This paper presents the design, and performance of a high fidelity three degree-of-freedom wrist exoskeleton robot, for neuroscience study, training and rehabilitation. The IIT-Wrist is intended to provide kinesthetic feedback during the training of motor ...
Emergence of Smooth Pursuit using Chaos
Found in: Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems, IEEE International Conference on
By Boris Duran, Giorgio Metta, Giulio Sandini
Issue Date:July 2007
pp. 269-272
The task of tracking an object has been fully studied and many solutions presented before. However, it is a perfect test bed for the study of a novel model using Coupled Chaos Systems. Once an object appears in front of a camera, we demonstrate that the vi...
Development of perception of weight from human or robot lifting observation
Found in: Proceedings of the 2014 ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '14)
By Alessandra Sciutti, Francesco Nori, Giulio Sandini, Laura Patanè
Issue Date:March 2014
pp. 290-291
Human interaction is based, among other factors, on non verbal and implicit communication. By observing the action of someone else we can automatically infer several non obvious details of what's happening, as the goal of the agent, his mood and even some ...
