The researchers are running on adrenalin. Today ARMAR is supposed to show the DFG reviewers what it can do. First task: object recognition. Will everything run smoothly?
Talking, walking, holding, filling the dishwasher: ARMAR has learned a lot in the last seven years. Now it is time to show whether it has really mastered its new capabilities.
ARMAR is supposed to eventually move like a human being. Because the more the appearance and the movements of a robot resemble those of humans, the better it will be accepted by them.
Programming by demonstration: this is how Martin Lösch wants to teach ARMAR to set the table. To do this he wears data-acquisition gloves with magnetic field sensors. A camera system is installed to monitor everything.
Soft, compliant and sensitive: ARMAR's new hand can even handle a raw egg. The gripping mechanism developed by Dr. Artem Kargov and his colleague Immanuel Gaiser hides something sensational....
What characteristics do cups have? How do you pick them up and put them down? In a few weeks ARMAR will be reviewed by the DFG. By then it will have to be able to handle a cup properly.
"Bring me that cup." ARMAR doesn't understand everything yet. Pointing gestures could help improve communication with the robot.
Toasters, blenders, kettles: the kitchen is teeming with sounds that ARMAR has to recognise and distinguish. Hey ARMAR, can you hear us?
What only a few years ago sounded like science fiction, ARMAR will soon turn into reality. The high-tech robot is not only supposed to be able to see people, but recognise them as well.
