The goal of this project is to develop a high-fidelity robot arm that can perform human tasks under force control. The current prototype is a 4-DOF (active) robotic arm being developed in the Salisbury Robotics Lab with sponsorship from Bosch R&D. This video shows the arm moving a Bosch stud-finder to locate and map metal objects underneath the table. One eventual goal is to be able to send this robot arm to map the structures embedded in a wall so that a contractor knows where to work on the wall.
