Robot grasping – why depth helps
We often take for granted our ability to interact with the world around us – to pick up objects, turn them around, throw, drop, hold or put down, regardless of what that object is. We automatically adjust our grasp to delicate objects, larger or smaller things. If you take a look at the objects around you right now, consider the variety of sizes, shapes and materials. A robot trying to pick up that variety of objects needs to locate the objects, evaluate size, shape, material and more, and then attempt to turn that information into movement and commands to the gripper.
Take the survey, download the guide, and read all about why just placing a robotic arm in the right place to pick something up is only part of the complex problem of robot grasping.
