Sucking robot arm wins Amazon Picking Challenge – BBC News

A robotic arm that combines a suction cup, a “two-fingered” gripper and a 3D depth-sensing camera has won Amazon’s latest warehouse bot competition.

Team Delft’s machine triumphed over its rivals at both of the two tasks.

One involved selecting products from a container, picking them up and putting them on a shelf. The other was doing the actions in reverse.
