Towel-Folding Robot
Added Feb 23, 2012 | Rate View top rated
A team of UC Berkeley researchers, with funding from the National Science Foundation, has programmed a robot to fold towels. They've overcome a major challenge in robotics, which is programming robots to manipulate flexible objects that change shape. Professor Pieter Abbeel and his team developed novel computer vision and manipulation algorithms that enable their robot, PR2, to reliably find the corners of the towels so it can fold them.
