Time : 11:00 – 12:00

Location : Chair of CPS, Montanuniverität Leoben

Participants: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Elmar Rueckert, Vedant Dave


  1. Working towards Tactile Conditioning with ProMPs.
  2. New idea regarding Visual learning through demonstrations.

Topic 1: Tactile Conditioning with ProMPs

  1. Construct object with soft and hard properties.
  2. Data collection from Franka and Seed Hand: Coupled and Decoupled trajectories.
  3. Apply ProMPs in both the scenarios.
  4. Goal Directed learning: Conditioning ProMPs in last n% of tactile data.
  5. Try to implement VAE’s in Tactile Data(Optional).

Topic 2: Survey Paper Preparation

  1. Write Down few lines regarding each tactile related papers for future survey paper.
  2. That will be the second paper in this line.

Topic 3: Visual Learning from demonstrations

  1. Develop the Generative pipeline without Reinforcement Learning.
