At Automatica, Shadow Robot demoed a system including concepts and functionality developed for RAMCIP. The system was comprised of a Shadow E1 Dexterous Hand, a UR10 arm and an Asus Xtion structured Light 3D camera. An array of objects taken from the YCB object set were presented on a table in front of the user for detection and recognition. The user could then select an object simply by pointing at it. This was implemented using the skeleton tracking and action recognition modules developed by CERTH for RAMCIP.
