The generation of the object model data and the design and implementation of the underlying object representation and the interactive object modelling area have been funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) in the course of the Collaborative Research Center 588 ( SFB 588 "Humanoid Robots -- Learning and Cooperating Multimodal Robots"), and partially by the German Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung in the course of the German Service Robotics Initiative "Desire", and have been conducted by the Humanoid and Intelligence Systems Lab at the Karlsruhe Institue of Technology (KIT), Germany.
