Learning from Demonstration with Minimal Human Effort

Learning from demonstration and reinforcement learning have been applied to many difficult problems in sequential decision making and control. In most settings, it is assumed that the demonstrations available are fixed. In this work, we consider learning from demonstration in the context of shared autonomy...

Betty at Blenheim Palace

Betty is a mobile service robot from the Oxford Robotics Institute. She has been extensively used the GOALS group to demonstrate long-term autonomous behaviour in real-world dynamic environments. Her software was originally developed by a European consortium as part of the STRANDS Project. In that project Betty and [...]

Mission Planning for Mobile Robots with Probabilistic Guarantees

Consider an office robot that must execute a range of tasks such as guiding visitors to offices; checking whether fire exits are clear; carrying and delivering items as requested by office users; and making announcements (“staff meeting in 10 minutes!”). A crucial requirement for such a robot [...]
