The PlayMate: An Object Manipulation Scenario

Hardware

The experiments with the integrated PlayMate systems are carried out at the University of Birmingham, and DFKI using a PeopleBot, a B21r and a Katana arm. Both the mobile platforms have one or two cameras mounted on a pan-tilt unit which allow the robot to scan the scene. The Katana arm used for manipulation also uses a wrist mounted camera to allow more precise grasping of objects. Because we are limited to using a two finger gripper we have currently restricted the graspable objects to everyday objects like cereal packets.
