The university where I work is in the process of development and we do not have laboratories as advanced as laboratories in Europe, however, I hope we can imitate some protocols and ways of working, so that we can apply them in northern Peru. We have similar projects that will be developed in the coming years with robotic claws coupled to Cartesian robots, aimed at Peruvian agribusiness. The UR5 robotic arm is a very advanced object manipulation platform, which will serve as a basis to let us know how to manipulate the seedlings by means of the robot\'s claw and because it can replicate the same movement several times with spectacular precision and in less time, which allows to reduce the seal time of the seedlings.
The objective of this project is to develop algorithms that generalize cleaning manipulation tasks in a simulated and actual environment. Based on state of the art, the meta and multi-task reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms are used to learn the tasks with a few datasets and shared structure. I organized this research in simulated and actual robot manipulation tasks as a daily cleaning table with a Universal robot 5 and Robotiq gripper.
The main impact will be two-fold: (i) scientific and (ii) career development
(i) Implementation, testing, and validation of research ideas will potentiate the publication of the results in the top robotics journals and conferences, and boost the impact of the research results.
(ii) It is possible to work European projects together as a joint project and provide opening job opportunities in the future.
Career development impact:
(i) The rich academic environment of the Department of Computing, which is part of the University of Bristol, is able to provide diverse classes.
