The babies experience helped scientists to teach the robot arm to move

In the United States announced a robotic arm Vestri move objects on your experience as interact with the world babies. Worked on development of the scientific staff of the University of California.


The experts gave the robot a number of objects with which he was allowed to do for one week. Managing received objects, Vestri memorized their shape and location in one time or another. In addition, he recorded data about what can happen to the subject during each manipulation.

Upon completion of the training project authors examined the actions of the robot when the movement of objects on the trajectory: forced to push a toy snowman from one point to another. The mechanism was able to correctly predict the position of the snowman and move it by applying previously learned information. Also, the robot learned to move the objects around other objects, and all manipulations were given to him with 90% accuracy.
