Funded under the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, the PERSEO Innovative Training Network will train Early Stage Researchers on Personalized Robotics as Service Oriented applications, responding to emerging challenges concerning the need for robot behaviour with a high level of personalisation.
The aim of PERSEO is to have a cloud repository of robot behaviours that allows an easy personalised configuration approach. This requires the investigation of different robot capabilities to adequately understand and model the human–robot interaction and adapt the robot’s behaviour to the context. Hence, researchers in computer science, philosophy, and psychology will study how robotics technology can be personalised on the physical, cognitive and social levels.
Ortelio will be employing a PhD candidate in the context of PERSEO, who will work on cloud enabled robot autonomy through a cloud-based, GPU compatible SLAM library.
