TOP 1: Update on the Leoben Team progress by Elmar

Niko finished the ROS-2 interface for the RH8 robot hand. Now Niko works on online RL through Bayesian Optimization with the use of ROS-2 based web-interfaces for tablets. Niko and Ege will stay in close contact as shared control is highly related to Niko’s work. 

Fotis is working a visual representation learning paper that combines VAE with contrastive learning. The paper will be submitted in January 2023. In a student project, Fotis is investigating an AR interface based on a Hololens2 for human-robot-interaction scenarios. The glasses will be used to visualize trajectories, rewards, etc., and to provide inputs to the robotic system.

Vedant is working on active exploration.
