University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley) engineers have developed artificial intelligence software that integrates neural networks with motion-planning software to enable robots to assist humans in warehouse settings.
The software gives robots the speed and skill to grip and smoothly move objects.
The UC Berkeley researchers upgraded a Grasp-Optimized Motion Planner that can compute how a robot should grip an object and move to transfer it between locations. They added a deep learning neural network, accelerating the planner's computing time and eliminating jerky movements.
The combined neural network and motion planner shortened average computation time from 29 seconds to 80 milliseconds.
