Skilligent Robot Learning System
Introduction
Videos demonstrating the product's capabilities

This series of videos demonstrates the basics of the robot training process. The videos show a robot being trained to execute procedures of increasing complexity.

The fist goal is to train a robot to go to a certain place in a room, pick up an object there and then drop the object into a bin located somewhere else. After that, the robot is trained to perform a "sorting" task - dropping different objects into different bins.

A sample mobile robot shown on the videos is equipped with a 6 DOF robotic arm manipulator.

Video 1: A robot performs a learned procedure

The first video demonstrates how a pre-trained robot autonomously performs a learned procedure.

The robot has been pre-trained to do the following:

  1. drive to a landmark (a poster) placed on the wall and make a left turn there in order to locate an area where the robot is supposed to pick up an object;
  2. pick up an object (a box) at the object pickup area and make a left turn in order to locate a bin;
  3. drive closer to the bin and drop the object (the box) into the bin

The robot can reliably perform the procedure over and over again. Skilligent software uses a built-in robot vision system in order to locate objects, look for landmarks, navigate around the place, estimate object's position and control the robotic arm manipulator.

If a landmark, an object or a bin has been moved from their original places, the robot is still capable of successfully completing the procedure.

Video 2: A robot training session

The next video shows how the robot was trained to perform the procedure shown in the previous video.

During a training session, the robot needs to learn how to navigate to a certain place, pick up an object there and drop the object into a bin located somewhere else.

The training does not require any special technical skills from the trainer. The user doesn't touch a keyboard or joystick throughout the training.
