LA Robotics Club

A Los Angeles Community of Robot Designers, Builders, and Dreamers


Baxter is a low-cost ($25,000) industrial robot designed to work "elbow to elbow" with human co-workers. It incorporates a variety of interesting design ideas in hardware, software, and wetware interfacing (that's fancy talk for how it interacts with humans).

Key Innovations


Here's Rodney Brooks doing a TED talk about Baxter and the need for humans and robots to work together in the future.

And for those who want more details about how Baxter actually works (this means you) here's Rodney Brooks giving lots of them in an hour long seminar to Carnegie Mellon Univiersity robotics students. The strange term he mentions in the talk is Quaternian by the way.

Here's a montage of Baxter robots doing actual work in various factories.
