Public Summary Month 2/2011

GRASPY project, targeting to develop stereovision head for humanoid robot Nao permitting the robot to grasp objects autonomously from the hand of a human, started in October 2010. During the first three months of the project, DFKI and Aldebaran Robotics engaged the work of design of the stereovision head and the development of software. The first approach for grasping objects has been implemented using existing software for plain object detection with a monocular vision system. Also, partners have determined the final scenario of the experiment: humanoid robot Nao and human exchanging different objects. The robot will take objects from human’s hand and will grasp objects in front of him and will hand it to the human.
