Meet HERB — a Home Exploring Robotic Butler

HERB, the Home Exploring Robot Butler created by Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute, is the star of the latest video in Oreo’s ongoing “Cookie vs. Creme” campaign. HERB was built by integrating a Segway RMP 200 with additional robotic functions.

HERB is the research platform of the Personal Robotics Lab and is a testbed for algorithms, software and other technology that will enable robots to perform challenging manipulation tasks where people live and work.

These videos are behind-the-scenes looks at HERB and his creators, associate professor Siddhartha Srinivasa, Ph.D. student Jennifer King and project scientist Pras Velagapudi. Click here to read Carnegie Mellon University’s blog post and learn more.

Research and Development for Universities

Segway ground robot platforms are the ideal starting point for applications used in research and development at universities. Segway’s RMPs are designed with simplicity in mind, which means that universities will have the freedom to choose and integrate the best hardware for their specific application.

For example, a university that is currently using Segway RMPs in their research and development studies is the University of Philadelphia’s School of Engineering and Applied Science.

They have designed the PhillieBot, which is a one armed, three-wheeled robot built atop a Segway RMP 200. The PhillieBot has recently thrown the opening pitch at a Philadelphia Phillies game. To learn more about the PhillieBot, check out the video below.
