Watch this robot assembling IKEA chairs

Would you let a robot assemble your Ikea furniture for you? The research team in Singpore designed an AI to enable two robotic arms to insert pins and manipulate IKEA parts.

The idea is to design a robot capable to read instruction and perform the assembling task for you. One less problem for the humanity 🙂 !

The researchers : “The assemble sequence can be automatically determined from the assembly manual, through vocal instruction from a supervisor or from an image of the chair”

The IKEA assemble robot can use some heuristics calculation to figure out next steps. With both robotic arms it can assemble chairs in about 20 minutes, a feat that not many of us can emulate.

Failures? Ever robots do mistakes
