Robot Learns To Flip Pancakes

Monday, July 26th, 2010

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.

Nimble Pancake Picking Robot

Look at this thing fly. No humans needed, just raw robotic speed and accuracy. The Flexpicker takes randomly distributed pancakes from a conveyor and stacks them to a predefined (selectable) stack pattern on a central conveyor and transports the stacks to a flow wrapper for outer wrapping.
