Robotic Grasping and Manipulation Competition – Task 1: Task Board Assembly
No Audio - Task 1 of the manufacturing track of the IROS 2017 Robotic Grasping and Manipulation Competition will be comprised of an assembly subtask and a disassembly subtask using a task board. The task board was developed as part of a NIST project to develop tools for benchmarking the performance of assembly robotics. During the assembly subtask, the manufacturing task board and kit layout is placed on the table. Location can be predefined by the team or arbitrarily placed within a defined region by the competition staff to test perception solutions. Perception solutions qualify for bonus. Nuts, gears, pegs, and male electrical connectors are placed on their respective locations on the kit layout, with optional randomized layout. The goal is to pick all nuts, gears, pegs, and male connectors from the kit layout, and assemble them into their defined locations on task board within the allotted competition time. Points are assessed on a per part basis. This video shows a person performing the assembly subtask to demonstrate the steps needed to be performed by a robot system.
