Robotic Scrabble

For my project in an Autonomous Robotics class taught by Ron Arkin, I chose the fun task of making a robot play Scrabble. Well, the robot never really played Scrabble. But it would pick up Scrabble pieces from its tray and place then on the board.

I've included below three quicktime movies of the robot in action. Click on the images to see the quicktime movies. I recorded these with a video camera after I demoed the project for my professor. If you are really curious, you can look at postscript versions of my project writeup and my assessment of the results. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me email.
