The Human Machine: Episode 12 - Decision Day

The Human Machine: Episode 12 - Decision Day

The researchers are running on adrenalin. Today ARMAR is supposed to show the DFG reviewers what it can do. First task: object recognition. ARMAR moves unerringly to pick up the rice box. But there is more to come: Now the robot has to open the dishwasher and get a drink out of the fridge. Will everything run smoothly?
