UC Berkeley scientists create towel-folding robot

Posted on Wednesday, April 07 2010 @ 01:26:06 CEST by

Engadget reports researchers at UC Berkeley have learned a PR2 robot how to fold towels. There still some work to be done though, as folding one towel still takes about 25 minutes.
We've already seen Willow Garage's PR2 robot learn to roam offices in search of a power outlet, and it looks like some researchers at UC Berkeley have now helped it pull off its most impressive feat yet: folding towels. That may not sound like too hard a task, but it's actually proven to be quite a conundrum for robotic laundry researchers, since robots need to first pick up a towel from a pile and then somehow determine that this previously unseen shape is, in fact, a towel that can be folded.
