Pool Playing Robot

This Pool Playing Robot is one heck of a project! Not quite a robot that you could walk into a random pool hall with since the cameras are mounted above the pool table but I still think you would be able to win a few wagers with it.

“Thomas Nierhoff, a masters student at Technische Universität München (TUM), used a human-sized mobile robot with dual 7-DOF arms that’s able to manipulate a pool cue similarly to how a human does. A camera above the table tracked the positions of the balls and helped the robot plan its shots, separating each into various difficulty thresholds to help the bot decide which it should take. “
