In May 2015, our Team RBO won a prestigious international robotics challenge, the Amazon Picking Challenge. This challenge aims to solve one of the last problems in warehouse automation: identifying and grasping objects from a warehouse shelf.
Our robot was able to secure the lead by picking 10 out of 12 objects, outperforming 25 teams from Europe, USA and Asia, amongst them teams from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), UC Berkeley as well as many robotics companies.

This project addresses a fundamental challenge in the intersection of machine learning and robotics. The machine learning community has developed formal methods to generate behaviour for agents that learn from their own actions. However, several fundamental questions are raised when trying to realize such behaviour on real-world robotics systems that shall learn to perceive, actuate and explore degrees of freedom (DoF) in the world. These questions pertain to basic theoretical aspects as well as the tight dependencies between exploration strategies and the perception and motor skills used to realize them.

The main obstacle to a wide-spread adoption of advanced manipulation systems in industry is their complexity, fragility, lack of strength, and difficulty of use. This project describes a path of disruptive innovation for the development of simple, compliant, yet strong, robust, and easy-to-program manipulation systems. The idea is: Soft Manipulation (SoMa). The project is funded by European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement 645599.
