TIAGo is a wonderful robot platform with navigation, sensors, and a whole host of smart features for researchers. As this video shows, it can be programmed with a NVIDIA Jetson TX2 to open a fridge, grab a beer, and deliver it.
Here is how these guys pulled it off:
we integrated the semantic segmentation into a practical use case where we propose a state dependent segmentation method. The robot navigates to a fridge, searches for a handle to open it. Once the the fridge is open, the robot takes an other look for segmenting beer bottles and cans inside the fridge and grasps them. In the end the fridge is closed and the beer is delivered.
