Online Interactive Perception
Our code of our perceptual system for Online Interactive Perception of articulated objects. It includes our methods presented in at IROS14 (PDF, 1,8 MB) and ICRA16 (PDF, 2,3 MB). The system extracts patterns of motion at different levels (point feature motion, rigid body motion, kinematic structure motion) and infers the kinematic structure and state of the interacted articulated objects. It uses an RGB-D stream of an interaction as input. Optionally, it can reconstruct the shape of the moving parts and use it to improve tracking. More info at omip wiki.

Learning State Representations with Robotic Priors
This simple python script contains the essence of our work on learning state representations with robotic priors and complements the paper to provide sufficient detail for reproducing our results and for reusing the method in other research while minimizing code overhead.

Probabilistic Multi-Class Segmentation for the Amazon Picking Challenge
This repository includes the code and data for the object perception method of our winning entry to the 2015 Amazon Picking Challenge. The object segmentation method and the analysis from the accompaning paper are implemented in python. The data can be used to develop and benchmark new perception methods in this setting.

concarne: Learning with Side Information
concarne is a lightweight python framework for learning with side information (aka privileged information). concarne implements a variety of different patterns that enable to apply side information. As it builds upon Theano and lasagne, you can use neural network structures that you have developed yourself and easily combine them with the side information learning task.

RBO Aleph: A Web Service for Automated Protein Structure Prediction
RBO Aleph provides a fully automatic protein structure prediction pipeline. The focus of our system is ab initio structure prediction.
RBO Aleph has been evaluated to be one of the leading ab initio structure prediction methods in CASP11.

EPC-map: Combining Evolutionary and Physicochemical Information for Contact Prediction
Our approach integrates decoy-based contact prediction with machine learning and evolutionary information from multiple-sequence alignments, called EPC-map (using Evolutionary and Physicochemical information to predict Contact maps).
This method ranked 2nd for long+medium range contacts and 5th for long-range contacts in CASP11.
A web service implementing this method is available here:

Tutorial on building PneuFlex actuators
PneuFlex actuators are a version of so called soft pneumatic continuum actuators. Their production process is relatively simple, and can accomodate complex actuator shapes. This tutorial explains how to build them.

Pneumaticbox Control System
The Pneumaticbox is a specific hardware combined with an embedded software system to provide a complete control solution for PneuFlex actuators:
A Hardware providing valves, pressure sensors, common I/O interfaces (USB, SPI, I2C) and an embedded computer
The pneumaticbox-airserver server that abstracts hardware I/O and runs real-time controllers on behalf of networked clients
The python-pneumaticbox: A Python client library for easy integration into existing systems or direct scripting of experiments
