The JPL Humanoid team, in collaboration with University Partners, is developing efficient robot fostering techniques for sensory-motor development of humanoid robots. Key elements of the fostering techniques include teaching/learning by imitation, teaching by description/explanation, reinforcement, aid and collaboration. The effort focuses on the robotics counterpart of human cognitive and motor development that would create a more efficient man-machine interaction. The overall objective is replacing humans operating in unsafe environments. A first target application is assembly of structures for future lunar-planetary bases. The initial development platform is a Fujitsu HOAP-2 robot.
