Winners of Robotic Grasping and Manipulation Competition @IROS2016
The QB - UNIPI - IIT Team earned the top award at this year’s Robotic grasping and Manipulation Competition, that took place in Daejeon, Korea during the International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS). The team was asked to control their robotic hand through two different tracks, respectively Hand-in-hand grasping and Fully autonomous: each track consisted in different tasks that had to be completed in a limited time frame.
The Cybathlon is the brainchild of ETH Zurich and NCCR Robotics professor Robert Riener and was forged with three aims in mind; to facilitate conversation between academia and industry, to facilitate discussion between technology developers and people with disabilities and to promote the use of robotic assistive aids to the general public.
qbrobotics is attending at this event as part of the SoftHand PRO Team, lead by Sasha Godfrey. The team competes in the Powered Arm Prosthesis category and its pilot is Clint Olson, who uses an hand developed by the Italian Institute of Technology, the University of Pisa and qbrobotics. With this hand he has to perform different tasks that reminiscent of daily domestic activities.
