Motivation: The baby is crying for her milk. You're busy and your hands are full. A robot system is needed that can prepare the bottle (shake it) and hand it over to a smaller worker mobile robot which can deliver it to the baby. The system is called AKACYANPION. AKACYANPION is comprised of a light-weight Speego Yamabico Mobile robot, an Xtion RGBD camera, a pan and tilt unit for versatile maneuvering of the camera, and an Exact Dynamics iArm manipulator.
