Idiap's DexROV project featured in RTS's CQFD radio show today
DexROV is a robot of a special kind. This underwater robot is destined to take the place of human divers for tasks in very deep water (up to 1’300 meters under the sea). The Idiap Research Institute in Martigny is in charge of developing the algorithms that will help teleoperating the two arms of this robot.
Sylvain Calinon, head of the Robot Learning & Interaction group at Idiap, explains how the Baxter robot will allow testing the DexROV algorithms.
