About this Research Topic
Typically, three problems in this field of research are yet to be solved:
1) how to integrate learning and control models seamlessly for more dexterous manipulation and interaction performances
2) how to compute learning and control policies from multimodal/cross modal data
And 3) how to make use of advances of both data-driven and model-based models for compliant and flexible interactions
The goal of this Research Topic is to bring together the newest theoretical findings and experimental results in advanced learning control applied to robot-environment physical interaction systems.
This Research Topic encourages paper contributions, which are related to but not limited to:
- Learning control from demonstrations, especially from multimodal demonstrations
- Probabilistic and statistical methods for learning control
- Reinforcement learning based adaptive control for contact-rich tasks, especially for long-term tasks
- Impedance/ admittance/force control for compliant manipulation
- Advanced control methods (e.g., iterative learning control) applied to robot-environment interaction scenarios
- Applications of learning control in physical interactions, e.g, industrial, medical, and rehabilitation tasks
Keywords: learning control; multimodal learning; advanced control; dexterous manipulation; physical interactions.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
