Robot Learned To Mix Drinks or Ingredients by Imitating Humans

Posted in Robots

This Robot Imitating Humans by seeing what they’re doing. Researchers from the University of Maryland didn’t teach their robot how to mix a drink and make a salad.

It learned those tricks by itself. Instead of programming a robot to perform tasks, the team is working on “autonomous robots,” as you can see in the video above. These robots have the ability to observe, learn, and eventually make decisions on their own in order to complete tasks. Next up on the team’s to do list: Teaching the robot how to use a dishwasher and microwave.

As per in the video and picture above we can say the robot named as ‘Baxter’ from rethink robotics. Check video description about Baxter Robot in manufacturing.

Baxter is also different from other industrial robots because it can learn. A worker could teach Baxter how to perform a task by moving its hands in the desired motion and having Baxter memorize them. Extra dials, buttons, and controls are available on Baxter’s arm for more precision and features.

Any regular worker could program Baxter and it only takes a matter of minutes, unlike usual industrial robots that take extensive programs and coding in order to be used. This means Baxter needs no programming in order to operate. No software engineers are needed. This also means Baxter can be taught to perform multiple, more complicated tasks.
