Towards Mobile Multi-Task Manipulation in a Confined and Integrated Environment with Irregular Objects

The FetchIt! Mobile Manipulation Challenge, held at the IEEE International Conference on Robots and Automation (ICRA) in May 2019, offered an environment with complex and integrated task sets, irregular objects, confined space, and machining, introducing new challenges in the mobile manipulation domain. Here we describe our efforts to address these challenges by demonstrating the… Continue reading Towards Mobile Multi-Task Manipulation in a Confined and Integrated Environment with Irregular Objects
