Milestone 2 Explained

A lot of you watched the video of our Milestone 2 run and had plenty of questions, so we put together a video that explains everything in better detail. The video talks about what sort of sensors we use and gives more insight into what the PR2 alpha robot is doing at each step of the process.

We know that a lot of our research audience out there would like more detail than a short, 5-minute YouTube video can provide, so here are slides from Sachin Chitta's presentation that was given at the Workshop on Mobile Manipulation in Human Environments at RSS 2009. It provides a more technical overview of the algorithms, representations, and software systems used. We apologize that videos from the talk are not included, but you should be able to see similar footage in the video above.
