 +We want to essentially teach a robot how to perform every day activities without having to dive deep into code, but rather simply show the robot what we want him to do using Virtual Reality. This would allow robots to learn from humans easily, since this way, the robot can acquire information about where the human was looking for things and where things were placed. Of course, this could also be hard coded, but that would take a lot more time and be prone to failure, since we as humans, often forget to describe very minor things which we automatically take for granted, but which can play a huge role in the success of a task for the robot. E.g. if the cooking pot is not in its designated area, we would automatically check the dishwasher or the sink area. This is something the robot would have to learn first.

 +The advantage of using Virtual Reality for this is also, that we can train the robot on all kinds of different kitchen setups, which can be build within a few minutes, instead of having to move around physical furniture. This would also allow for generalization of the acquired data and would add to the robustness of the pick and place tasks. ​
