a robotic arm picks up an object in a glovebox

The IRAD System performed a pick and place task inside a glovebox environment for the first time. For this task, the canister was not placed in a predefined location and tasks were not predetermined. A Kinect sensor device was used to identify locations inside the glovebox environment. Watch the Youtube video here. Dual-arm collision detection and robot-to-camera calibration were integrated for this task.
