I've been known to give the Rethink Robotics Baxter robot a hug once in a while. It is nice to work with a robot that doesn't try to kill or maim you.

  • Intro to Baxter's motion and end effectors

  • Simple 1-step vertical pick and place
  • Vision picks
  • Two step pick and place with coordination
  • Paths: retract from box, etc
  • Editing
  • Hands on
