Picking Snap Circuit Parts

Picking a snap circuit part.  This model took about 15 minutes to acquire rgb and IR data using our Baxter. (The slow part is the IR scan.)  We also had to annotate the default grasp point.  It’s automatically picking using the cameras to localize the object and then goes in to grasp.

We also successfully teleoperated Baxter to pick up one of the parts and snap it into place.  It was possible, but took two separate manoeuvres to get both ends to engage.  We had to move the arm very slowly and practice a few times first.   Video is here:
