Humans in the loop help robots find their way

The task set for this Fetch robot by Rice University computer scientists is made easier by their BLIND software, which allows for human intervention when the robot’s path is blocked by an obstacle. Keeping a human in the loop augments robot perception and prevents the execution of unsafe motion, according to the researchers. Credit: the Kavraki Lab

Just like us, robots can’t see through walls. Sometimes they need a little help to get where they’re going.

Engineers at Rice University have developed a method that allows humans to help robots “see” their environments and carry out tasks.
The strategy …
