The TMC's Orange Crunchers rounded another milestone. For the first time their no-named robot was equipped with a dual gripper. This gripper allows them to actually pick and cut an orange, cruch the two halves, and serve a glass freshly squeeze juice. The video gives evidence of this - simple but complex - achievement.
It is still work in progress and it needs fine-tuning but for now the robot does what is has to do: finds and cuts oranges and produces juice. The team is quickly moving on to the next milestones fore the HTS fair on 7th and 8th of May. ... And yes, the team has noticed the horrible sound of the rotating motor too :-).
