An example-based motion synthesis technique for locomotion and object manipulation
We synthesize natural-looking locomotion, reaching and grasping for a virtual character in order to accomplish a wide range of movement and manipulation tasks in real time. Our vi...

Planning and Control of Meso-scale Manipulation Tasks with Uncertainties
— We develop a systematic approach to incorporating uncertainty into planning manipulation tasks with frictional contacts. We consider the canonical problem of assembling a peg i...

An Augmentation System for Fine Manipulation
Augmented surgical manipulation tasks can be viewed as a sequence of smaller, steps driven primarily by the surgeon's input. These steps can be abstracted as controlled intera...

Balancing of a Planar Bouncing Object
While most previous work in planning manipulation tasks relies on the assumption of quasi-static conditions, there can be situations where the quasi-static assumption may not hold...
