Related Work: Mason’s Rule Line of pushing and the edges of the friction cone “vote” to determine which way the object will rotate We want the workpiece to rotate in a direction that will result in alignment with the gripper edge Matthew T. Mason, Mechanics of Robotic Manipulation, MIT Press: Cambridge, MA. 2001.
Stable Push Grasps Stable push grasps (SPGs) satisfy the following conditions after the gripper contacts the workpiece and continues pushing: –The workpiece purely rotates about the contact point (no slipping) –The workpiece rotates toward stability on the gripper face (becomes aligned with the gripper) –The second gripper achieves force closure
Problem Statement Assume: –Part on Worksurface –Planar Projections of Part and Gripper –Planar, Quasi-static Motion Given: –Nominal 2D Polygonal Part –Center of mass –Shape, Center of Mass –Lower Bound on Friction Uncertainty in: –Relative Pose –Center of mass –Shape
Problem Statement Perturbations in: –Relative Pose –Center of mass –Shape –Push Motion
Approach: Stable Push Grasps Position Jaws Make Initial contact with Vertex of Jaw 1 Stable Push with Jaw 1 to Align Edges Close Gripper Contact with Jaw 2
Failure Modes 3. Gripper contacts with too large an angle for the workpiece to maintain sticking after some rotation
Failure Modes 4. Gripper contacts on wrong side of friction cone (rotation)
Max Contact Angle Center of Mass Inverse Friction Cone 0 d2d : Allowable angle First Gripper Maximal value of for each point on the edge within the inverse friction cone Angle (in degrees) Note: The C-space plot includes all constraints except ensuring that force closure is attained by the second gripper. = arctan( - x/z) x z 0 d2d x
Sampling Vertex Positions Sample: Part Vertices and CG within uncertainty zones (500 samples) Sample Relative Pose –50x50 grid Sample Line of Pushing –0.5 degrees Evaluate if SPG Color by % SPG
Uncertainty May Help? Same uncertainty about all vertices of workpiece Two vertices with greater uncertainty for workpiece

Related Strategy: Task Space Regions Dmitry Berenson et. al., “Addressing Pose Uncertainty in Manipulation Planning Using Task Space Regions”, The International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 2009
Task Space Regions TSR analyze the six-dimensional space representing possible goals for a gripper and consider the pose uncertainty in order to avoid potential collisions The rejection sampling with TSR allows to decline if the region is impossible to achieve the task with the uncertainty IKBiRRT find a C-space path to the grasp Dmitry Berenson et. al., “Addressing Pose Uncertainty in Manipulation Planning Using Task Space Regions”, The International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 2009
Next Steps Allow Slip Use Concavities Consider Torque around CG Adaptive Sampling Parallel-Sampling in Cloud…
Next Steps Potential Methods: –After each 50 iterations, eliminate point- angles with less than 20% of the successes of the most successful point –Image segmentation: keep areas with an average value that is “high enough,” since relative success of areas shifts with the sampling
Related Work: Force Closure Line segment between contact points must lie within the friction cones of the contact points on each edge Van-Duc Nguyen, “Constructing Force- Closure Grasps,” The International Journal of Robotics Research, 1988; 7; 3.
Related Work: Friction Cones Matthew T. Mason, Mechanics of Robotic Manipulation, MIT Press: Cambridge, MA. 2001. If the line of pushing (lp) is within the friction cone, the workpiece will not slip with respect to the gripper, as it is pushed.
