New Robot Acquired: Baxter from Rethink Robotics
The most recent addition to the Robotics Labs' family of robots is Baxter from Rethink Robotics. Baxter is a manufacturing humanoid robot with two 7-axis arms, integrated cameras, sonar, torque sensors, and direct programming access via a standard ROS interface. He is being used as part of our research on Neural Networks and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury. You can see some photos of us unboxing and setting up Baxter to the left.
