Abstract (Swedish)
Learning from demonstration represents a powerful type of
learning and a promising alternative to programming robots. However,
even after years of research in the field the current level of robot
imitation skills can be compared to a 2-year old child. Most of the
presented works up to now have been exact imitation of trajectories
without any particular understanding about the rudimentary goals of
the movements. This paper presents our approach to developing a
robot that imitates a human drummer, where the robot is able not to
perform a scaled copy of the movements of a human demonstrator but
to emulate the goal of the instructor’s actions through observation of
action and goal extraction based on tests with human subjects. The
