Scientists Develop Robots That Can Foresee Their Future Movements
On December 5, 2018, it was reported on Republic TV, a new technology integrated in robots can enable them to predict future actions they may have while encountering the new objects. The technology was developed by researchers at University of California, Berkeley in the U.S.
Scientists have developed a new program for robots to analyze their future actions, which can be utilized to manipulate obstacles before handling them. By the use of this new technology, the robots can analyze how to manipulate objects they haven’t dealt with previously. Self-driving cars can be aided with this technology by possibility to anticipate future events on the road. However, the initial find concentrates on learning basic manual skills completely from auto play. By the use of this technology, called ‘visual foresight,’ the robots can predict what their cameras will see if they perform a particular sequence of movements.
Although these robotic imaginations are foresights calculated only several seconds into the future, they are sufficient for the robot to understand how to handle objects around or on a table without causing a mess. The robots do not need human help because the visual imagination is learned entirely. By the use of this new technology, robot pushes objects on a table, then uses the learned prediction model to choose actions that will move an object to a desired location. Robots use the learned model from raw camera observations to teach themselves how to avoid obstacles and push objects around obstructions.
The advancements in self-learning robotic technology are mentioned in Self-Reconfiguring Modular Robot Market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
