Scientists teach robots to ask for help




Researchers at MIT have taught robots to neatly to people to ask if they detect that something has gone wrong help. The application would have much utility in unstructured environments, such as in people’s homes.

The researchers learned called Kuka-bots to help. The Kuka-bots were presented in May this year by Italian researchers and are able to convert. A small Ikea table together in 10 minutes itself That writes the IEEE on its website.

To complete this task, it is however necessary that the parts are in the right place, so that the robot can reach it. This is useful if a man that will help drive away. In the beginning the collaboration was rough because it was unclear what the man had to do, which led to frustration precise.

Now the robots themselves detect when something is not right, then determine exactly what should be done to solve the problem and clearly a man explain how the problem can be solved. Because the ask for help from the robots and an algorithm is not preprogrammed, the robots can also ask. In unfamiliar situations for help

In addition to the benefits to the Kuka robots, it would ask for help also provide for other robots, such as benefits in partial automation, where one or two steps often go wrong and can be. Might be better performed by a human
