This is the landing page for collecting PR2 related information useful for the Georgia Tech PR2 team. More information on our project can be found in Willow's blog post here.
- The PR2 must always be attended while operating.
- Follow all Willow safety instructions (see links in the reference section)
- No screws
- No liquids
- No sharp objects
- Don't place stuff on top of the robot (ever!)
- Don't put fingers where they don't belong
- Always have the wireless run-stop in hand before running the robot.
- When leaving for the night, taking long breaks, etc:
- Activate the back run-stop
- Activate the wireless run-stop
- Place the wireless run-stop, and PS2 gamepad on the base station table.
- Plug the robot into an empty wall socket. As the PR2 draws a great deal of power, there is a risk of fire if you plug it into an overloaded socket.
- Be wary of the grippers and wrist joints as they are normally fairly stiff and have a number of pinch points.
