#ICRAcam (Part 3): IKEA assembly-bots, RoboSherlock, MRI-powered millirobots and human-robot contact

June 23, 2015

ICRAcam_00_900pxwIn Part Three of our ICRAcam series, you’ll learn about what it takes to get a robot to build IKEA furniture, information processing for robot perception, an MRI-powered millibot that shoots like a Gauss Gun to make tiny holes for surgical applications, and coordinated motion and contact in HRI. A special thanks to IEEE RAS ICRA, who allowed us to film at the event to bring you highlights from some of this year’s exciting papers. We’ll be sharing lots more ICRAcam videos over the next couple of weeks, so watch this space!  Check out all our ICRA coverage here
