The UMI-RTX robot arm, which was originally designed in 1985 , is still up-and-running in the Intelligent Robotics Lab. For their internship from the École Nationale Supérieure de Techniques Avancées Bretagne, Théo Massa and Guillaume Garde build a ROS2 interface which allows to control the robot, visualize its state and make use of a ZED-m depth-camera mounted above the robot.
More details can be found at their report . Their code is available on github.
