Remember the TIAGo robot? It is a research platform with obstacle avoidance, multi-sensor navigation, and other advanced features that can pick & place, grasp, and complete other tasks. homerUniKoblenz has shared a video that shows how it can be programmed to autonomously bring a beer from the fridge.
To complete this project, a NVIDIA Jetson TX2 was connected to a TIAGo robot. It serves as as vision module and enables the robot to find the fridge, open it, and grab a beer bottle.
