The exhibition A View from Within (Endophysical Robotic Perception) – Phase 2, realized by the PERCRO Perceptive Robotics Laboratory of the TeCIP Institute of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa proposes a series of integrated video-installations illustrating some levels of perceptual processes and cognitive activated by the control unit of a robot during the execution of simple operations, from the taking of an object, to the recognition of people. The continuous flow of visualization represents, according to a first-person perspective, the sensorial data related to the external world acquired by the robot and the different phases of their processing through artificial intelligence algorithms. The observer, physically placed within the viewing space, can thus visually perceive, for the first time, a unitary experience of the perceptual processes of the robot machine.
