CSAIL demos two robots assembling IKEA furniture

August 11, 2013

Ikea-being-assembled-by-two-robots At last week’s White House Google+ Hangout, Daniela Rus, the director of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), demonstrated two robots working together to assembly a piece of IKEA furniture.
“All of this is done autonomously without any human intervention,” Rus explained. The bots work from the furniture product’s CAD file and then have a library of actions necessary to build what is displayed in that file.
