Robot DexNet 2.0 - 99% precisie grijpen

03 juli 2017

Grabbing the awkwardly shaped items that people pick up in their day-to-day lives is a slippery task for robots. Irregularly shaped items are easy for people to grab and pick up, but robots struggle with knowing where to apply a grip. In a significant step toward overcoming this problem, researchers have a built a robot, called DexNet 2.0, that can pick up and move unfamiliar, real-world objects with a 99% success rate.
DexNet 2.0 gained its highly accurate dexterity through deep learning. The researchers built a vast database of three-dimensional shapes that a neural network uses to learn grasps that will pick up and move objects with irregular shapes (Nieuwsbericht UC Berkeley, 26 mei 2017).
