EPFL researchers in Switzerland have developed a robot that is capable of reacting on the spot and grasping objects with complex shapes and trajectories in less than five hundredths of a second.

Robot developed by EPFL researchers is capable of reacting on the spot and grasping objects with complex shapes and trajectories in less than five hundredths of a second. The ability to catch flying things requires the integration of several parameters and reacting to unforeseen events in record time. “Today’s machines are often pre-programmed and cannot quickly assimilate data changes, added Aude Billard. Consequently, their only choice is to recalculate the trajectories, which requires too ...
