Learning robot hitting motions with DS

General Scope:

This work is an extension to the SEDS approach that allows encoding a considerably wider set of tasks ranging from reaching movements to agile robot movements that require striking a given target with a specific speed and direction. This approach is validated in the context of playing the challenging task of minigolf.
