Multi-model object grasping and manipulation

En Yen Puang (Ph.D. Student)

Foundation models have been gaining momentum in robotics research recently. However, grounding the behavior for better predictability especially on physical robot has been a major challenge. In this proposal, research directions are proposed towards data scarcity, domain gap, physic grounding, and task and motion planning. The objective is to incorporate multi-modal sensory data for planning and manipulation; utilizing the foundation model for fast adaptation in new tasks and environments.
