UC Berkeley student team solving laundry problem with robots

June 8, 2011

The difficulties of loading a hamper of dirty clothes into a washer, transferring it to a dryer, removing and then folding all the different types of clothing and undergarments is a desired app for a home robot – and one being attempted by a whole class of robotic students at UC Berkeley using a WillowGarage PR2 robot.
