I am not an expert in robotics (definitely not in pear trees pruning either) but I will try to give some hints to partially answer and also to help reframe the problem a bit. On overall I'll give already an answer: it is most likely possible, but also most likely not convenient. Problem statement First things first: in general the rule is that machine ...

There are quite a few ROS (Robot Operating System) based humanoid robots. Not all of them will be open-source down to the firmware level but most will at least be to the control level. I'm not aware of any that have open-source hardware as well. Some examples include: Talos Reem-C Nao OP3 Thormang3

If I had to implement a path exploration/finding algorithm on a robot, I would follow these steps: Make sure you can detect your position. You need to be able to record your position otherwise you have no reference for the exploration. You don't need a global positioning system (like GPS), a local one is more than enough in your case. This means that the ...

The abbreviations sim2sim, sim2real and real2real refer to techniques that can be used to transfer knowledge from one environment (e.g. in simulation) to another one (e.g. in the real world). sim2sim stands for simulation-to-simulation, sim2real stands for simulation-to-real, and real2real stands for real-to-real. In sim2sim, knowledge acquired during ...

Welcome to AI.SE @EdouardLopez! Because Boston Dynamics is a private, for profit, company, we cannot know for sure how they achieve their results. However, we can examine the available public information and make educated guesses. In the information posted with the video, Boston Dynamics tells us that they use ... an optimization algorithm transforms ...

The rotation matrix $R_k(\theta)$ associated with a given unit-length vector $k$ and angle $\theta$ is given by the following formula $$\small{R_k(\theta) = \begin{bmatrix} \cos \theta +k_x^2 \left(1-\cos \theta\right) & k_x k_y \left(1-\cos \theta\right) - k_z \sin \theta & k_x k_z \left(1-\cos \theta\right) + k_y \sin \theta \\ k_y k_x \left(1-\...

There is some research on this topic. See, for example, the papers Robot Identification and Localization with Pointing Gestures (2018) and Proximity Human-Robot Interaction Using Pointing Gestures and a Wrist-mounted IMU (2019), by Boris Gromov et al., where the human is assumed to possess an inertial measurement unit (IMU) attached to the arm

Simply we say AI is software and robot is its body. This is because the algorithms we commonly think of AI come in the form of software, where when we talk about robots, we're talking about physical automation. In an automobile manufacturing process where automation is used, the software makes the decisions on what physical action the robot arm should ...
