Learning Task-Oriented Grasping for Tool Manipulation from Simulated Self-Supervision 

In this paper, we propose the Task-Oriented Grasping Network to jointly optimize both task-oriented grasping of a tool and the manipulation policy for that tool. The training process of the model is based on largescale simulated self-supervision with procedurally generated tool objects.

机器人学(Robotics)研究的是「机器人的设计、制造、运作和应用,以及控制它们的计算机系统、传感反馈和信息处理」 [25] 。 机器人可以分成两大类:固定机器人和移动机器人。固定机器人通常被用于工业生产(比如用于装配线)。常见的移动机器人应用有货运机器人、空中机器人和自动载具。机器人需要不同部件和系统的协作才能实现最优的作业。其中在硬件上包含传感器、反应器和控制器;另外还有能够实现感知能力的软件,比如定位、地图测绘和目标识别。之前章节中提及的技术都可以在机器人上得到应用和集成,这也是人工智能领域最早的终极目标之一。
