Attented for a semester, with an Erasmus scholarship for my diploma Thesis : In hand object modeling for robotic perception using ROS (Robot Operating System), OpenCV/C++.
The subject was to develop a technique that enables robots to autonomously acquire models of unknown objects, thereby increasing understanding. Ultimately,such a capability will allow robots to actively investigate their environments and learn about objects in an incremental way, adding more and more knowledge over time. Equipped with these techniques, robots can become experts in their respective environments and share information with other robots, thereby allowing for rapid progress in robotic capabilities.
