PAMU: valet parking of the future. A car that drives itself. Science fiction, you say? Fictional in Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report, set in 2054, the driverless car could be a reality before then. It will be a while before you can peruse your newspaper while doing 130 km/h on the highway, but intelligent cars are already being tested on special closed circuits. We take a close-up look at the Advanced Urban Mobility Platform program developed by our Engineering-Innovation engineers and their partners (1), financed by the Conseil Général des Yvelines, and tested on the roads of Renault’s Technocentre. If you happen to see a Fluence Z.E. without a driver (or passenger) making its way, Knight Rider-like, along the roads of the Renault Technocentre, don’t panic, you’re not hallucinating. The AUMP was designed with the development of a taxi pool in mind. The advantages are obvious. So what about the future? Tags : aump autonomous car intelligent. Careers : Tandent.

Master_thesis_hri.pdf. People. Open Position. Idiap has an open internship position for a student to work in the new Robot Learning and Interaction Group. The project involves the bimanual robot Baxter controlled by torque commands, enabling the production of natural human-like movements by modifying the stiffness at the level of the articulations. The project aims at exploiting this variable compliance to make the robot sketch a picture on a drawing pad, by exploiting both force and position information, and by using the two hands simultaneously.

The regulation of the stiffness is used to press the pen/brush lightly on the paper (compliant in the vertical direction and stiffer in the other directions). The image processing tools required to transform the picture into a series of 3D drawing strokes will be provided, as well as the inverse kinematics tools required to convert the 3D strokes to joint angle trajectories. Determination of the largest drawing plane that can be simultaneously reached by the two hands of the robot.
