Orientation Attentive Robotic Grasp Synthesis with Augmented Grasp Map Representation

Abstract: Inherent morphological characteristics in objects may offer a wide range of plausible grasping orientations that obfuscates the visual learning of robotic grasping. Existing grasp generation approaches are cursed to construct discontinuous grasp maps by aggregating annotations for drastically different orientations per grasping point. Moreover, current methods generate grasp candidates across a single direction inContinue reading “Orientation Attentive Robotic Grasp Synthesis with Augmented Grasp Map Representation”
