The Robotics & Biology Laboratory, ​headed by Oliver Brock, focusses on research in mobile manipulation. The group develops solutions for mobile manipulation that tightly couple various aspects that traditionally were considered separately (e.g. hardware, planning, control, perception, etc.). The concept of interactive perception, for example, considers perception and manipulation as inseparable components of a single problem, leading to novel solutions both in perception and in manipulation. And the lab’s grasping research combines the development of novel hands with associated planning and perception algorithms. The lab will present the resulting mobile manipulation capabilities in various demonstrations, amongst them a demonstration from the Physical Exploration Challenge DFG project in collaboration with the Machine Learning and Robotics Laboratory from Universität Stuttgart, headed by Marc Toussaint.
