Playing Catch With The TerminatorSubmitted by MMJ Ministry on Tue, 11/27/2012 - 04:26
Entertainment robots in theme park environments typically do not allow
for physical interaction and contact with guests. However, catching and
throwing back objects is one form of physical engagement that still
maintains a safe distance between the robot and participants. Using a
theme park type animatronic humanoid robot, we developed a test bed for a
throwing and catching game scenario.
