In the Dexter Scenario we have developed robots that are concerned with different aspects of manipulation. We have developed three robot systems related to Dexter during the course of the project. The first of these Dexter systems learns to predict the effect of its actions on the motion of an object.
The second Dexter system estimates whether or not a grasp will be stable by combining estimates from vision and tactile sensing. Click on the image below to see a video describing how it works.
The third Dexter system performs grasps on objects it hasn’t seen before. Click on the image below to see a video describing how it works.
