STPOTR: Simultaneous Human Trajectory and Pose Prediction Using a Non-Autoregressive Transformer for Robot Following Ahead

1 code implementation15 Sep 2022 Mohammad Mahdavian, Payam Nikdel, Mahdi TaherAhmadi, Mo Chen

The proposed architecture divides human motion prediction into two parts: 1) the human trajectory, which is the hip joint 3D position over time and 2) the human pose which is the all other joints 3D positions over time with respect to a fixed hip joint.

BaRC: Backward Reachability Curriculum for Robotic Reinforcement Learning

1 code implementation16 Jun 2018 Boris Ivanovic, James Harrison, Apoorva Sharma, Mo Chen, Marco Pavone

Our Backward Reachability Curriculum (BaRC) begins policy training from states that require a small number of actions to accomplish the task, and expands the initial state distribution backwards in a dynamically-consistent manner once the policy optimization algorithm demonstrates sufficient performance.
