Generalized Multiple Correlation Coefficient as a Similarity Measurements between Trajectories

Proceedings of the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) ​ Urain, J. & Peters, J. (2019) Abstract A similarity distance measure between two trajectories is an essential tool to understand patterns in motion, for example, in Human-Robot Interaction or Imitation Learning. The problem has been faced in many fields, from Signal Processing, Probabilistic Theory…

Design of Timeline-Based Planning Systems for Safe Human-Robot Collaboration

In: Vallati M., Kitchin D. (eds) Knowledge Engineering Tools and Techniques for AI Planning. ​Springer, Nature Orlandini A., Cialdea Mayer M., Umbrico A., Cesta A. (2020) Abstract During the last decade, industrial collaborative robots have entered assembly cells supporting human workers in repetitive and physical demanding operations. Such human-robot collaboration (HRC) scenarios entail many open issues. The deployment of highly flexible and adaptive plan-based controllers is capable…

ROS-TiPlEx: How to make experts in A.I. Planning and Robotics talk together and be happy

Abstract presented at RO-MAN 2019  Viola, C., Orlandini, A., Umbrico, A. & Cesta, A. (2019). Abstract This paper presents a novel comprehensive framework called ROS-TiPlEx (Timeline-based Planning and Execution with ROS) to provide a shared environment in which experts in robotics and planning can easily interact to, respectively, encode information about low-level robot control and define task planning and…

On timeline-based games and their complexity

Theoretical Computer Science. 815 Gigante, N., Montanari, A. (University of Udine), Orlandini, A. (CNR-ISTC), Cialdea Mayer, M. (University of Roma Tre), Reynolds, M. (The University of Western Australia) (2020) Abstract In timeline-based planning, domains are described as sets of independent, but interacting, components, whose behaviour over time (the set of timelines) is governed by a set of temporal constraints.…

A Prototype for the Robust Execution of Flexible Plans

Proceedings of the 1st Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Formal Verification, Logics, Automata and Synthesis, Rende, Italy, November 19–20, 2019. Lanzilli Annarita; Cialdea Mayer Marta (ROMA TRE University, Rome, Italy); Cesta Amedeo; Orlandini Andrea; Umbrico Alessandro (ISTC-CNR, Rome, Italy) Abstract Timeline-based Planning and Scheduling (P&S) usually deals with two main sources of uncertainty: some components may depend on an external environment and…

Toward intelligent continuous assistance

Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Humanized Computing Umbrico Alessandro; Cortellessa Gabriella; Orlandini Andrea; Cesta Amedeo (CNR- ISTC) Abstract Technology supported assistance is a research area dedicated to support both older adults and, at some level, their caregivers in a variety of situations and contexts. A number of projects doing detailed evaluation both with robots and/or ICT-based intelligent devices…
