LEE, M., MENG, Q. and CHAO, F., 2006. Developmental robotics from developmental psychology. IN: Proceedings of Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems conference (TAROS-06), Guildford, Great Britain, 4-6 September 2006, pp.103-110.
Developmental robotics is concerned with the
design of algorithms that promote robot adaptation
and learning through qualitative growth of
behaviour and increasing levels of competence.
This paper uses ideas and inspiration from psychological
knowledge of pre-grasping infants (up
to 3 months of age) to examine the issues and
factors that might produce similar mechanisms
for use in robotic systems. The study includes
discussion of results from robotic experiments on
sensory-motor models and key issues are raised
