Zhengheng Gho Dave Touretzky Visually Guided Manipulation Primitives for an Educational Robot

Regis is a new prototype educational robot developed in the Tekkotsu lab at Carnegie Mellon. It consists of a 6 degree of freedom Lynx Motion arm which ends with a gripper and a 4 degree of freedom Lynx Motion arm that ends with a camera. The project aims to develop simple manipulation primitives like pushing and grasping for Regis with the aid of visual guidance, hence overcoming problems associated with open loop manipulations.
