Representing Unstructured Environments for Robotic Manipulation: Toward Generalization, Dexterity and Robustness
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2021-09)
We would like to have highly useful robot manipulators that can handle a diversity of objects/environments, perform challenging manipulation tasks while being sufficiently robust such that deployment at scale is feasible. ...
Integrated perception, planning and feedback control for generalizable robotic manipulation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)
Humans can easily adapt their manipulation skills to unseen objects, new environment and different tasks. However, existing robot manipulators are typically limited to known object instance and skill transferring is ...
Lithium-6 filter for a fission converter-based Boron Neutron Capture Therapy irradiation facility beam
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
(cont.) A storage system was designed to contain the lithium-6 filter safely when it is not in use. A mixed field dosimetry method was used to measure the photon, thermal neutron and fast neutron dose. The measured advantage ...
The local innovation system of the oil and gas industry in the North Sea : the application of patent data in the study of innovation systems
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
The North Sea oil province, one of the world's major centers of petroleum and natural gas production, has been in play for four decades. Production rates have approached their peaks in recent years and are expected to ...
