We will address the fundamental challenges of cooperative human-robot object manipulation and transportation, based on the precise formulation and rigorous solution of problems in perception, cognition, and control. The key concepts that this research seeks to promote are adaptability to human activity under minimal communication, and robustness to variability and uncertainty in the environment, achieved through a layered representation and deliberate processing of the available information. Moreover, this project aims to make maximum use of a minimal set of sensors to plan and control the actions of the robot, while ensuring safe and efficient cooperative transportation.
