In our previous posts from June and December we have shone light on the optical detection of wires and wire harnesses. However, all these algorithms are based on camera images and return the poses of desired objects in the sensor’s coordinate frame. To incorporate these information a calibration of both sensors, as well as the robotic manipulator is necessary. The fully autonomous calibration pipeline developed at TUM resolves this issue.

The idea proposed by the REMODEL project is to create an incremental skill-based robot knowledge that, with few iterations of Teaching by Demonstration, allows the robot to operate with less supervision, in such a way that the worker can focus on other more complex tasks increasing the productivity. For this reason we must develop equipment suitable for robot use.
