Cloth Manipulation

This research group is studying the manipulation of flexible surface objects such as cloth by robots. In order to handle flexible objects that are easily changeable in shape and difficult to manipulate, we are describing the tasks, developing the hardware necessary for manipulation, recognizing the object with an RGB-D camera, and controlling the robot to perform precise manipulation.
