As part of the Cyber-Human Lab seminar at IfM, we have the pleasure of hosting two guest speakers from the Poznan University of Technology (PUT), Poznan, Poland. The seminars will run one after another from 12:00 to 13:15 in Seminar Room 2 at IfM, West Cambridge. The Cyber-Human Lab seminars are open to everybody.

Dr Krzysztof Walas, Assitant Professor with PUT , will deliver the first of the two talks.


This talk will describe our latest developments in deformable linear objects (DLO) manipulation. First, I will present our approach to fast DLO shape estimation, which is robust to occlusions and works on 2D and 3D data. Second, I will discuss DLO manipulation with two robotic arms to obtain the desired configuration based on reliable perception. Finally, I will show our results in the context of the industrial scenario. The presented research is part of the H2020 REMODEL project, where one of the proposed use cases is placing the wiring harness in the car cockpit in a vehicle manufacturing process.

Presenters Bio:

Krzysztof Walas graduated from Poznan University of Technology (PUT) in Poland, receiving MSc in Automatic Control and Robotics. He received (with honours) PhD in Robotics in 2012 for his thesis concerning legged robot locomotion in structured environments. He did his Postdoc at The University of Birmingham, School of Computer Science, Intelligent Robotics Laboratory. He is a recipient of the LIDER project from the National Center for Research and Development. He was a PI in the THING project on subterranean-legged locomotion within Horizon 2020. He is PI in REMODEL project on deformable object manipulation within Horizon 2020. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence at PUT . His research interests are related to robotic perception for physical interaction applied both to walking and grasping tasks.

This talk is part of the Cyber-Human Lab Seminar Series series.
