A Challenge for Learning Dexterous Manipulation on a Real Robot
The goal of this challenge is to advance the state-of-the-art in robotic manipulation, a key skill required to deploy robots in the real world. Each team will have a budget of more than 100 real-robot-hours on high-performance robotic platforms hosted at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen. The software interface is very simple and safety checks run in the background, such that participants can experiment freely.
The teams will have to solve a series of tasks ranging from relatively simple to extremely hard, from pushing a cube to picking up a pen and writing. The idea is to see how far the teams are able to push, solving the most difficult tasks could be considered a breakthrough in robotic manipulation.
