Robot Learns To Flip Pancakes

July 26th, 2010 by

The video shows a Barrett WAM 7 DOFs manipulator learning to flip pancakes by reinforcement learning. After 50 trials, the robot learns that the first part of the task requires a stiff behavior to throw the pancake in the air, while the second part requires the hand to be compliant in order to catch the pancake without having it bounced off the pan.
