Robots can abuse packages, too

January 26, 2013

An important development from Industrial Perception, Inc. — a new start-up from the guys at Willow Garage — may enable robots to make new inroads into the package-handling business.  As you can see in the video below, robots can now throw around and otherwise abuse packages just like human delivery personnel.

All kidding aside, this video does demonstrate some fairly impressive visual perception and dexterity for a an industrial robot arm.  I just hope that’s not my box it’s tossing around!
