Product description

The Volaly project aims at providing simple yet intuitive interface for controlling robots in human proximity by means of pointing gestures—an innate interface that people use all the time to communicate with each other. Unlike joystick interfaces, pointing expresses target positions and directions relative to the human and therefore does not require extensive training for robot control. The interface allows to control ground and flying robots in the direct line of sight by simple point-to-target gestures. The typical tasks that can be solved with such an interface are pick-and-place, object and area labeling, teaching by demonstration, and others.

Our system relies on orientation of the arm that we acquire with an off-the-shelf smartwatch-like device worn at user’s wrist. This way, we estimate pointed locations with respect to the user. We then convert indicated locations into the robot’s frame using coordinate transformation estimated with a proprietary, patent-pending technique.
