Imagine you could know when someone’s walking behind a wall. A research group at MIT [Zhao et al.] investigated just that. Using radio signals, they were able to estimate 2D human poses behind walls. We, a sub-team of the amazing Roboy Project at Technical University of Munich, decided to re-implement that approach with commercially available … Read more
From serving ice cream to cooking. Now that Roboy just manages to serve ice cream, it’s time to think of our next goal. From manipulation of ice, to dexterous manipulation of goods. Quite a challenge! We’ll need a much more versatile hand, better vision to detect the objects, a new planner, and of course a robot that knows his recipes! Very exciting!
Another Semester has passed and it is time to celebrate our advances! And there have been a plethora: Not only will you see Roboy serve Ice Cream on his Rickshaw – a task that requires the dialog system, control, hardware, vision and much more to work in unison, but we’re also about to unveil the first glimpses of the 3rd generation of Roboy – A robot helping us to win the XPRIZE! We’ll also be announcing a new and very unique robotics competition – something that will help us achieve human performance faster! Really, Roboy is picking up a lot of speed thanks to our amazing partners, a dedicated team and of course our vision to make robots just so much better.
