I have seen one of the many video KIVA Warehouse Robot .. and asked myself.
The humanoid robot type are very exciting but very complex to make and schedule and not see them practical for the task they have to do.
Manipulation of objects is complex, but the take from point A to point B, is relatively simple with wheels.
So I think it is possible and practical solution if you have to spend huge amounts of money and time.
And I think the biggest difficulty in the software will be able to communicate one or more units ...
Would it be possible to make one for domestic using RASPBERRY PI and some additional hardware for motors, sensors, barcode scaner,etc? So we could have ordered the room, the pantry, the closet ..?
Anyway, I do not want to spend $ 1million dollars has to buy a KIVA, but about $ 200 to $ 500 would not be bad ...
What do you think?
