The first edition of the Mobile Manipulation Hackathon was celebrated at IROS 2018. Here’s a summary of the demonstrations that the six participant teams could achieve with a TIAGo robot in 24h. Find more about the MMH at: http://iros18-mmh.pal-robotics.com/
PAL Robotics is excited to announce a new TIAGo with two arms, TIAGo++! After carefully listening to the robotics community needs, we used TIAGo’s modularity to integrate two 7-DoF arms to our mobile manipulator. TIAGo++ can help you swiftly accomplish your research goals, opening endless possibilities in mobile manipulation.
Our partnership with Heemskerk Innovative Technology (HIT) resulted in the successful control of TIAGo with a haptic device that lets the controller feel the forces in the robot’s environment. http://blog.pal-robotics.com/blog/rob…
PAL Robotics’ Whole Body Control is a ROS-based software system customized by our team to develop high-level applications by abstracting the complexity of a robot, especially when it has a large number of DoF. This is the case with humanoids TALOS, REEM-C or TIAGo.
PAL Robotics’ gravity compensation mode enables the development of multiple applications for robots that can match different needs, are safe and flexible. This video shows different examples of TIAGo demonstrations that use the gravity compensation mode.
TIAGo has a wide range of mobility thanks to its 12 Degrees of Freedom (without end-effector). Its 7 Dof arm and lifting torso enables TIAGo to reach objects from the floor up to 1.70m height.
Learning by demonstration software application for which TIAGo can pre-record movements and repeat them as many times as requested. The software is useful for collaborative tasks with people in fields like Industry 4.0.
