PR2 robot has learned to keep fragile objects

Student Joe Romano developed a tactile feedback system for the open source robot PR2 (produced by Willow Garage startup), so now he won't accidentally break a person if he decides to shake hands with him. The system works thanks to standard sensors in the PR2 grab clips.

Of course, other robot developers can download the created library for free, as well as other parts of the free operating system Robot Operating System .

We add that PR2 is already equipped with other security systems, including a collision avoidance system, but tactile feedback is a great improvement.
