In the past few months, we have covered plenty of projects that involve teaching robots how to perform simple and complex tasks. This video from Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory explores a fully automatic robotic system for uncertain contours. A low-cost camera is used to capture contour patterns to allow the robot controller to come up with a smooth path for coarse tracking using key points extracted from the data.
An additional module is used to conduct proper compensation during the robot’s motion. The above video shows how this robotic tracking system works.
