Baxter Playing Chess


Hello my name is Omar Gamal ElBere. I
am working with the AI and robotics lab (IRI) in the United Arab Emirates
University I made the playing chess robot Baxter project under the supervision of
Dr. Fady Alnajjar. The project consists of making the Baxter robot play chess
with humans and it was divided into two parts first to make the robot recognize the board and the player move and second to give him the ability to move
the pieces freely using his vision only without previous coded positions, and it
was the major challenge since Baxter’s arm positioning isn’t that accurate. Now Baxter robot can play chess with nearly accurate positioning and without the chess board being fixed in place Oh
