Robot fetches objects with just a point and a click

rd (no tethers or hidden computers in the next room) and runs Ubuntu Linux on a Mac mini.

El-E's laser pointer interface and methods for autonomous mobile manipulation represent an important step toward robotic assistants in the home.

"If you want a robot to cook a meal or brush your hair, you will probably want the robot to first fetch the items it will need, and for tasks such as cleaning up around the home, it is essential that the robot be able to pick up objects and move them to new locations. We see object fetching as a core capability for future robots in healthcare settings, such as the home," Kemp said.

The Georgia Tech and Emory research team is now working to help El-E expand its capabilities to include switching lights on and off when the user selects a light switch and opening and closing doors when the user selects a door knob.
