Hi, my name is Andy. I am an undergraduate student doing my 4th year in Monash (2016). I study mechatronics, and it is amazing.
My role in this project
this research is about understanding how to move the arm of Baxter. to do this, I chose to use a motion planning called moveit. moveit is an amazing motion planning which could be used for many robots. the pre-packaged motion planning include inverse kinematic in joint-space and task-space. and could be use for collision avoidance. although moveit is simple and very useful, it is not sophisticated enough to be used in warehouse environment, such as picking items from a shelf.
