Snappy: Snapshot-based Robot Interaction for Arranging Objects

Sunao Hashimoto, Andrei Ostanin, Masahiko Inami and Takeo Igarashi


Personal photographs are important media for communication in our daily lives. People take photographs to remember things about themselves and show them to others to share the experience. We propose using photographs as a front-end between a human and a home robot system. The user takes a photo to remember the target in a real-world situation involving a task and shows it to the system to make it physically execute the task. We developed a prototype system in which the user took a photo of a dish layout on a table and showed it to the system later to then have a small robot deliver and arrange the dishes in the same way.
