Discover why the top robotics programs in the world choose Fetch Robotics to educate and inspire future roboticists and engineers.
Since the introduction and widespread adoption of the Robot Operating System (ROS), the mobile manipulation and mobile service robot communities have seen great advances in robot capabilities. However, the lack of affordable and commercially available, fully integrated standard platforms remains a major barrier to further and faster advances.
The Fetch mobile manipulator and Freight mobile robot were designed to be the affordable standard platform for the next generation of mobile robot applications.
It’s no wonder that university programs around the world are equipped with a Fetch robot. Fetch provides students the freedom to design the automated solutions of the future.
Fetch Robotics CEO Melonee Wise was the second employee at famed robotics lab Willow Garage, where she helped create the Robot Operating System (ROS), the PR2 robot, as well as the Turtlebot. Since the launch of these products, they have become the standard tools used for robotics research and development.
Our short form video “Build Something,” which originally debuted at ROS World 2020, chronicles Melonee’s journey in the field of robotics and automation.
Michigan Robotics is bringing together leaders in the fields of robotics and autonomy, producing robots with unprecedented abilities.
In this project, students envisioned robotics in the home to help the elderly maintain their independence, so created a service robot that could help with assisted living using a Fetch mobile manipulator.
America, meet your new robot butler.
Robotics researchers at the University of Washington are engaged in ground-breaking work in mechanism design, sensors, computer vision, robot learning, Bayesian state estimation, control theory, numerical optimization, biomechanics, neural control of movement, computational neuroscience, brain-machine interfaces, natural language instruction, physics-based animation, mobile manipulation, and human-robot interaction.
In this project, students developed an automated library book retrieval system using a Fetch mobile manipulator.
Research in the UNCC Robotics Lab focuses on developing novel algorithms, technologies, and methodologies to enable and support the intelligent interactions of robots with the physical world and with other machines and humans in their environment.
Current research focuses on multiple robot coordination, robot motion planning, inspection and monitoring, and manufacturing and automation. The lab is equipped with several state-of-the-art drones, mobile robots, and robot manipulators that are used in research and education.
In this project, the Fetch mobile manipulator recognizes the object (pin holder) and places it on the same table.
