Project Ideas

Further details coming Fall 2022…

Stacking Cubes

Locate, grasp, and place cubes using aruco tags. [Advanced] Impose constraints like blue cube must be on red cube, and use planner to determine stacking order

Face Tracking

Using a camera held by the gripper, write controller that follows someone’s face around as they move. [Advanced] anticipate person’s motion for smoother tracking

Throwing Objects into Bin

Design motor sequence to throw object some distance. [Advanced] Parametrize motion to throw object at a specific world position.

Tactile Mapping

Use motor feedback to “map” an object. [Advanced] classify the object

Top-Down Picking

Given top down camera, use computer vision techniques to locate objects and determine grasp pose. [Advanced] use machine learning to generalize to arbitrary objects.
