On November 26, 2010, in Robotics, by Mike Jefferson

Robotics is rapidly developing so it’s no wonder to see that robots are doing all sorts of things. Speaking of things that robots can do, you’ll be pleased to hear that PR2 robot has learned some new tricks.

Robots can move all sorts of things nowadays, but they do not know whether the object is filled with something or not. PR2 robot has learned a few things so now it can analyze the objects that it is picking up. It can decide whether the objects are empty or not. PR2 is smart enough to sort out the bottles from the table, and it will even put the empty bottles in the trashcan while it will move the ones that are filled to the other side of the table.

PR2 did a flawless job when it comes to the sorting bottles, and we can’t wait to see what new tricks will this robot learn.
