  • TL;DR: Real Robot Challenge Phase 2: No ML Required
  • Abstract: In Phase 1, we presented an approach to rigid-body manipulation based on carefully-designed motion primitives. We now demonstrate in Phase 2 that these primitives combined with a more robust state machine can reasonably complete all 4 tasks. For Phase 3, we propose using model-based and time-constrained (e.g. contextual bandit) RL to select and optimize primitives based on the environment. In general, our approach emphasizes the use of ML machinery only when classical approaches fail.
