Baxter is a two-armed industrial robot with an animated face. It is 5'10" – 6'3" tall with a pedestal, and weighs 306 lbs including the pedestal. It is designed to be used for simple industrial jobs such as loading, unloading, sorting, and handling of materials, in small and medium-sized companies.
Within ECR, we use Baxter for a variety of table-top manipulation experiments, and as a teleoperation platform for developing human-robot interface technologies.
Baxter is available in a few other UK locations.
