This paper presents a novel probabilistic approach to deep robot learning from demonstrations (LfD). Deep movement primitives (DMPs) are deterministic LfD model that maps visual information directly into a robot trajectory. This paper extends DMPs and presents a deep probabilistic model that maps the visual information into a distribution of effective robot trajectories. The architecture that leads to the highest level of trajectory accuracy is presented and compared with the existing methods. Moreover, this paper introduces a novel training method for learning domain-specific latent features. We show the superiority of the proposed probabilistic approach and novel latent space learning in the lab's real-robot task of strawberry harvesting. The experimental results demonstrate that latent space learning can significantly improve model prediction performances. The proposed approach allows to sample trajectories from distribution and optimises the robot trajectory to meet a secondary objective, e.g. collision avoidance.
