Here is a badminton robot with a fixed base and robotic arm that can hold a racket and give badminton players plenty of practice. It uses a motion capture camera and reflective tape on the shuttlecock to figure out where to swing.
The robot can generate racket speeds of 21 meters per second. It has already mastered spin net shots. The robot has a fixed base but the Laboratory for Intelligent Systems and Informatics team plans to make it movable in the future.
