Robot learns to flip pancakes

The video shows a Barrett WAM 7 DOFs manipulator learning to flip pancakes by reinforcement learning. The motion is encoded in a mixture of basis force fields through an extension of Dynamic Movement Primitives (DMP) that represents the synergies across the different variables through stiffness matrices. An Inverse Dynamics controller with variable stiffness is used

ABB Robotics – Picking pancakes

ABB Robots installed by RG Luma are helping specialist food company Honeytop to speed up its pancake production and improve health, safety & hygiene. William Eid a director of Honeytop comments “This is our first investment in robotics technology and we have not experienced a single issue sincethe installation 6 months ago” Note: This is
