7/17/14. Members of the UVA community (big and small!) stopped by for homemade cookies and robot demos. Our new lab space is set up with an Optitrack Motion Capture system, a Baxter Research Robot, and a NAO humanoid robot -- all talking to each other via the Robot Operating System (ROS). For example, one demo let visitors control the position of Baxter’s arms by waving a t-shaped wand, shown below. The space is now ready to support our research!
