An ANSA.it article describes Justine, a robot developed by the DEXMART team of EU researchers at Naples University. Justine's arms and hands are precise enough to duplicate some of the movements of human hands. In particular, Justine can make instant coffee. This may not sound like much but researcher Bruno Siciliano explains, "'We want to develop a system of two-handed manipulation, equipped with sensors that make the robot conscious of its surroundings and the people in its working space." Making coffee is just the beginning for the DEXMART team. They hope their research will lead to robots that can more easily manipulate objects in common human environments like the home. Their approach is have the robot abstract its action using symbolic representation of goals. Check YouTube for some video of Justine in action.
