Twin Operation

On Friday we visited Rethink Robotics to install our software stack on their robots. They have agreed to help out with our scanning project. We calibrated three of the four arms; the fourth wrist camera had some kind of problem (perhaps hardware?) that led to an image that was too noisy to be useful. We have never gotten to use two robots at once before, and it was exciting to see them both moving and scanning objects. Our scanning stack is rapidly maturing, and we are on our way to scanning one million objects! More information about the research project is available in our Blue Sky Ideas paper.
