HERB, the Home Exploring Robot Butler, serves as the realistic testbed for all of our algorithms and as a focal point of our industry and academic collaborations. It is a bimanual mobile manipulator comprised of two Barrett WAM arms on a Neobotix base. It is equipped with a suite of image and range sensors, including the Carnegie Robotics MultiSense SL and Microsoft Kinect 2.
ADA, the Assistive Dextrous Arm, is the platform for many of our human-robot interaction and shared autonomy algorithms. One research focus involves assistive robotics for users with high spinal cord injuries. It is a Kinova Mico arm and is equipped with a Structure Sensor.
