We have integrated Baxter with the Kinect 2 using iai_kinect2. So far it seems to have higher latency than the Kinect 1, but higher resolution (so a larger workspace) and less calibration error. Overall picking is more accurate! The video shows four successful picks in a row.
We made a video of Baxter interpreting multimodal referring expressions using our multimodal Bayes filter. Our system interprets referring expressions in real time, outputting a distribution over objects at 14Hz.
Our paper on inverse semantics has won Best Paper at RSS 2015!
We created an automous helicopter that accepts natural language commands. The helicopter infers appropriate actions and navigates to a requested location.
