Autonomous Robotic Manipulation

Speaker: Jia Pan

Time: Aug 15, 10:30am - 11:30am.

Location: Room 410, Building Center


General robotic manipulation is challenging. To successfully manipulate an object, the robot must first accurately estimate the object's pose from the sensor data, and then find a good grasp of the  object via grasp planning, and finally use motion planning to compute a trajectory to approach the object. In some cases, the manipulation cannot be achieved in a single grasp due to cluttered environments or kinematics singularities, and regrasping is necessary for these cases. All these components of manipulation, including pose estimation, grasp planning, motion planning, and regrasp planning, can be difficult to solve.

In this talk, we will discuss about our solutions to some of challenges in robotic manipulation.


Jia Pan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, the City University of Hong Kong. His research area is intelligent grasping and manipulation, including motion planning, deformable object manipulation, learning from demonstration, reinforcement learning, and planning with uncertainty.
