VR Robotics Simulator: Robot Picking Up a Box in VR

In the previous lesson, we learned how to create a scenario to assemble a robot in VR using our hands. We learned how to assemble a UGV robot in virtual reality and determined the correct position of the pieces.

For this lesson, we will create a UGV that can move, grab and release objects in VR. In fact, you will learn how to make a robot pick up a box or release a box in virtual reality (VR).
