UR5 is provided by the Robotics Institute @ NCTU to support robotic manipulation education and research.

UR5 Detail


A Duckiebot contains a wide-angle camera, a processing unit (Raspberry Pi 2/3), and motors, and is able to follow lanes while avoiding obstacles, pedestrians (duckies) and other Duckiebots, localize within a global map, navigate a city, and coordinate with other Duckiebots to avoid collisions.

Mobile Manipulators

The mobile manipulator was used in the MIT 2.12 course , and later adapted in NCTU. Thanks to Peter Yu for initialing the robot and course material development as well as support for NCTU courses.
