An innovative approach to Robotics and Autonomous System

Postby PerceptualRobots » August 21st, 2017, 6:23 am

This week I launched on the crowd-funding site Patreon, https://www.patreon.com/perceptualrobots, to progress an innovative approach to autonomous robotic systems that overcomes some of the fundamental problems associated with conventional robotics. The funding will allow me to develop new robotic systems and to make available the designs along with the associated the software platform and GUI.

I'll be making the site and resources available to students for free, so if you are a student, and this sounds of interest send me a message directly and I'll add you to the list.

Two of the main problems of the conventional approach to robotics are that of the acquisition of models of the world and of coping with the unpredictable nature of the world. However, these are only a problem because of the misconceptions that lead to the conventional methodology.

By changing the methodology, with a radical, yet simple, re-engineering of the concepts and architecture of robotic systems, both of these problems are resolved. This is explained in more detail in my recent paper, http://www.mitpressjournals.org/doi/pdf/10.1162/ARTL_a_00229

I look forward to seeing you!
