Now that ARM-S Phase II is over, I’ve made all of my ARM-S videos public on my YouTube page. ARM-S is a competition, hosted by DARPA, to perform basic manipulation tasks autonomously with a 2-armed research robot. I was on the NREC team. Our robot was called “Andy”.
Here are some of the cooler videos:
Andy grasping things with DARRT
Andy planning around sensed clutter with CHOMP
Andy removing a tire
Andy localizing a door with touches
Andy building a tower out of blocks (this demo has been running at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum for about a year now)
