While industrial robots improve by leaps and bounds every year robots that can react to the fast moving world we all live in are still a challenge for scientists.
Leading the way is the Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory team at EFPL who have developed robotic systems capable of catching unbalanced objects in mid air. With reaction times under 50 milliseconds and the ability to track fast moving objects up close this is a quick draw robot.
Presented for your viewing pleasure is the robot catching machine that has already surpassed its creators when it comes to catching ability. Sit back, relax and prepare to be amazed.
