System description

OmniPick is an omnidirectional mobile manipulator consisting of a Ridgeback platform from Clearpath Robotics, and the collaborative Franka Emika Panda manipulator with 7 active degrees of freedom and 2-finger gripper. The system is equipped with an additional external PC, a WLAN access point, and a wireless node

The robot serves as a research platform for mobile packaging, i.e., joint control of the degrees of freedom of the mobile base and the robot arm. In this way, the robot has a total of 10 degrees of freedom, and the use of the base increases the range for manipulation.
