EL-E Retrieving an Object

EL-E executing actions triggered by a user in a sample object fetching application. In this video, Cressel Anderson, an able-bodied robotics researcher sitting on a wheelchair to simulate a user with motor impairments, first commanded EL-E to grasp an a cordless phone, then bring it back. After this, the robot was instructed to retrieve a pill bottle from the table, drive to a specified location, then set the object on a table next to the user.
