MIT researchers have developed a robot that can detect and grab objects that are hidden behind walls or pieces of clutter.
It could help warehouse robots grab customer orders or tools that are occluded behind obstacles.
If an object is concealed, they typically need to explore the environment and search for the item.
“Researchers have been giving robots human-like perception,” said study co-author Fadel Adib.
“We’re trying to give robots superhuman perception.
Robotic perception .
RF-Grasp is comprised of a camera on the robot’s wrist and a separate RF reader.
In tests, RF-Grasp successfully identified and moved objects that were concealed behind packaging and other obstacles.
The researchers say the system completed the tasks with about half as much movement as similar robots equipped with only a camera.
