Digger Finger Enables Robots to Locate Buried Objects

Robotic Gizmos

Here is a system that enables robots to locate and identify buried objects using touch. Digger Finger uses a modified GelSight tactile sensor to locate objects and uses vibration to help clear a path and prevent jamming.

When an object is found, Digger Finger twists to perceive more sides of the object to identify it.
