"Human-Robot Interaction for Cashier Robot" is my final-year project submitted at the University of Leeds. My individual project has been awarded the "Buckley Prize" as the best 60-credit project in the School of Computing for the academic year 2016-2017.
The robot used was Baxter Robot by Rethink Robotics and the programming language used was Python. This project combines several robotics areas mainly manipulation and computer vision.
As can be seen from the diagram below, the project has three main functionalities among others:
Furthermore, the system and the robot is aware of obstacles (table, depth sensor and walls) and the manipulation planning consider those obstacles. When the robot does the planning will try to find a collision-free solution for the manipulation problem.
The development of the project was split into three phases each of which brought a major functionality or improvement to the system. The final solution was tested using ten participants as well as testing each functionality isolated.
