Researchers design 'socially aware' robots that can anticipate - and safely avoid - people on the move
Researchers design ’socially aware’ robots that can anticipate - and safely avoid - people on the move
A team of researchers led by University of Toronto Professor  Tim Barfoot  is using a new strategy that allows robots to avoid colliding with people by predicting the future locations of dynamic obstacles in their path. The project, which is supported by Apple Machine Learning, will be presented at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Philadelphia at the end of May.
