  • Publication number: 20190228573
    Abstract: A method for generating a three-dimensional model of an asset includes receiving input parameters corresponding to constraints of a mission plan for operating an unmanned vehicle around an asset, generating the mission plan based on the input parameters including information of a representative asset type, wherein the mission plan includes waypoints identifying locations and orientations of one or more image sensors of the unmanned vehicle, generating a flight path for the unmanned vehicle connecting the waypoints that satisfy one or more predefined criteria, monitoring a vehicle state of the unmanned vehicle during execution of the flight path from one waypoint to the next waypoint, determining, at each waypoint, a local geometry of the asset sensed by the one or more image sensors, changing the mission plan on-the-fly based on the local geometry, and capturing images of the asset along waypoints of the changed mission plan.

  • Publication number: 20190219972
    Abstract: The present approach employs a context-aware simulation platform to facilitate control of a robot remote from an operator. Such a platform may use the prior domain/task knowledge along with the sensory feedback from the remote robot to infer context and may use inferred context to dynamically change one or both of simulation parameters and a robot-environment-task state being simulated. In some implementations, the simulator instances make forward predictions of their state based on task and robot constraints. In accordance with this approach, an operator may therefore issue a general command or instruction to a robot and based on this generalized guidance, the actions taken by the robot may be simulated, and the corresponding results visually presented to the operator prior to evaluate prior to the action being taken.

  • Publication number: 20190202053
    Abstract: A system for performing industrial tasks includes a robot and a computing device. The robot includes one or more sensors that collect data corresponding to the robot and an environment surrounding the robot. The computing device includes a user interface, a processor, and a memory. The memory includes instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to receive the collected data from the robot, generate a virtual recreation of the robot and the environment surrounding the robot, receive inputs from a human operator controlling the robot to demonstrate an industrial task. The system is configured to learn how to perform the industrial task based on the human operator's demonstration of the task, and perform, via the robot, the industrial task autonomously or semi-autonomously.
