Automatic Movement of an Object to a Target Position in Unity by Instantiating Flags as Destination

Automatic Movement of an Object to a Target Position in Unity by Instantiating Flags as Destination

This tutorial is about the automatic movement of an object to a target position in unity by instantiating flags as the destination. In fact, we will learn how to build a simple positioning system based on points built on detected surfaces. Finally, we will use those positions to automatically locate our object.

What is a collaborative robot used for?

What is a collaborative robot used for?

In this short answer, we answer the question about what a collaborative robot is asked by one of our beloved followers. For a long time, industrial robots, which were primarily programmable robotic arms, were put in a cage separated from human workers because they were not safe to be used in proximity of humans. They were mainly used to conduct dangerous tasks unsafe for human workers. For a long time, industrial robots were put in a cage separated from human workers. Fast forward several decades, with the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), Machine Learning (ML), advanced sensors, and…

Robot Grasping in a Heavily Cluttered Environment

Robot Grasping in a Heavily Cluttered Environment

Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) student Dongwon Son has recently published interesting research about reactive grasping in a heavily cluttered environment in IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters. Reactive robot grasping in a Heavily cluttered environment. Courtesy of Samsung Research and Dongwon Son. This study proposed a closed-loop framework for predicting the six-degree-of-freedom (dof) grasp in a heavily cluttered environment using vision observations. prediction results in robot grasping. Courtesy of Samsung Research and Dongwon Son. Experimental results on a robot in an environment with a lot of clutter showed that the grasping success rate had improved quantitatively compared…
