Japanese engineers have taught a robot to work in tandem with a man

Modern robotics is already pretty well developed. Just look at least on recent progress Boston Dynamics or to remember a factory where robots are creating other robots. However, as a rule, some robotic mechanisms only work well with others. To work together with someone on the same thing (just to work and not to receive commands from the operator) the robots still know very bad. But a group of researchers from Japan have developed an algorithm that will help robots to learn this skill.

The development are engineers from the University of Tokyo headed by Masatoshi Ishikawa and, reportedly, they have created a dynamic interactive system of interaction between man and robot, which allows the machine with high speed and low latency to adapt to joint operations.

A prototype of the manipulator has 3 "fingers" to robotic "hands". A set of infrared sensors and high-precision tracking system based on high speed camera allows you to capture the smallest details in the human movements, and to predict on the basis of moving object and thus to adapt to work together. To do this, however still need to consolidate a number of reflective markers on the object itself, to follow him.

At this point the robot can rotate the object around two axes and move it so that it was always in a horizontal position. Developers themselves admit that the system can still be modified and greatly improved and can find application in various industrial, material handling and Assembly lines.

But now, as a demonstration of the prospects of technology scientists put the metal plate on the metal cylinder. One edge of the plate held by the robot and for another — the man who asked the trajectory that you can see yourself in the video below.
