Robotic Grasping of Novel Objects using Vision
We consider the problem of grasping novel objects, specifically ones that are being seen for the first time through vision. Grasping a previously unknown object, one for which a 3-d model is not available, is a challenging problem. Further, even if given a model, one still has to decide where to grasp the object. We present a learning algorithm that neither requires, nor tries to build, a 3-d model of the object. Given two (or more) images of an object, our algorithm attempts to identify a few points in each image corresponding to good locations at which to grasp the object. This sparse set of points is then triangulated to obtain a 3-d location at which to attempt a grasp. This is in contrast to standard dense stereo, which tries to triangulate every single point in an image (and often fails to return a good 3-d model). Our algorithm for identifying grasp locations from an image is trained via supervised learning, using synthetic images for the training set. We demonstrate this appro...
