The Warthog is configured as a platform for mobile manipulation and is designed to take manipulation out of the structured environments of labs and office spaces into the real world. In the AutOTranS project, we integrated a navigation system, a grasp detection and planning system, and a custom task planner to allow Warthog to pickup, transport, and drop off novel objects like tools, fruits, and trash bags without any prior knowledge.
