Ball-Throwing Robotic Seal With 99% Accuracy

Engineers from National Chiao-Tung University of Taiwan have built a robotic arm dressed in furry seal outfit for throwing a ball into a basket. The percentage of successful ball-throwing was found to be approximately 99%.

“A stereo vision system is used to measure the position of the target in 3D space.The ball-throwing transformation between the input command of the robot system and the target position is built by cubic polynomial.

Through ball-throwing transformation with visual feedback for target position, the robot throws the ball toward the target which can randomly move to everywhere in visible field.”
