Robot Flips Pancakes, Is Not Easily Discouraged

Posted on 26/07/2010 by carlos-31 in Domestic, Prototypes
In an heroic effort to learn everyday household skills, this robot arm form the Italian Institute of Technology has learned the indispensable pancake flipping skill every robot needs (as thought by Dr Petar Kormushev andDr Sylvain Calinon). Despite the great difficulty of this task (who hasn't wasted a few pancakes attempting this and eventually gave up?) this robot does not get discouraged and keeps trying until it finally succeeds and successfully learns the skill. The fluidity of the manipulator motion in the last trial is remarkable and the way it attempts repeatedly and fails is very human-like. See the video below for pancake flipping robotic action: Via
