    STRANDS project

    Published on Aug 27, 2013

    Spatio-Temporal Representations and Activities for Cognitive Control in Long-term scenarios project. The aim of the research is to create mobile robots that are able to operate intelligently and independently, based on an understanding of 3D space and how this space changes over time, from milliseconds to months.

    STRANDS project - Witham Wharf dataset collection process

    Published on Feb 13, 2014

    The video shows the Linda Strands robot collecting data from eight different locations of the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems. During the second week of November 2013, the robot has repeated this procedure on a 10 minute basis, which resulted in a week long-dataset containing 8000 observations. Right now, Linda is using the gathered data to figure out what kind of activities and processes take place at the individual places.

    STRANDS movie for Universities Week

    Published on Jun 6, 2014

    Robot Linda will mingle with visitors at the Natural History Museum Members of the public will have the opportunity to meet Linda the robot at a week-long celebration of university research at the Natural History Museum in London. Linda is a specialist mobile robot currently being programmed to act intelligently in real-world environments, with the ultimate aim of being able to support security guards or staff in care homes. She is one of six robots involved in the ?7.2 million collaborative STRANDS project aimed at creating mobile robots that are able to operate independently, based on an understanding of 3D space and how this space changes over time. Linda, who is based at the University of Lincoln, UK, and named after the city's Roman roots as Lindum Colonia, will be mingling with visitors to the Museum from 9th'Robots on Patrol' exhibit. The event is part of Universities Week 2014 which aims to increase public awareness of the wide and varied role of the UK's universities. It will be an opportunity for the research team to showcase the robot, which has already learned to map a building and run for 30 days autonomously. Funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework programme (FP7), the research project involves six academic partners, a security company and an Austrian care home provider, where the technology will be tested. The robots will eventually be deployed to run for an extended time so they have the chance to develop an understanding of how the world should appear and be able to identify deviations from their normal environment. Dr Marc Hanheide, from the University of Lincoln's School of Computer Science, will be on hand throughout the week to explain Linda's capabilities. He said: The aim is to show members of the public how this sort of technology could help us in our everyday lives, assisting humans in basic activities allowing them to concentrate on more important aspects of their work. It's not just about providing a care home or security robot. We are trying to enable robots to learn from their long-term experience and their perception of how the environment unfolds in time. It will have many possible applications and taking Linda to the Natural History Museum is a fantastic opportunity for people to see how robots like this will, one day, be able to aid and assist humans in a variety of roles. The exhibit is just one of a number being hosted by the Natural History Museum as part of Universities Week 2014.
