Comical-Looking Robot Plays Catch [Video]
CREDIT: Disney Research
Disney Research has created a robot with a comical face and Terminator-like body that is capable of playing catch with humans. The robot returns the ball to the human after catching it. Disney says it used an external camera system to locate balls and a Kalman ﬁlter to predict ball destination and timing. The robot was also designed to turn and look at as it catches the ball. It can also shake its head, look down or shrug its shoulders if it fails to catch the ball.
