IKEA furniture tests robot skills

Still Waters

An unexpectedly heavy cardboard box, filled with flat-packed formations. Seemingly superfluous pieces of particle board. A madness-inducing number of screws, nails, and washers, plus the lingering fear that onemight be leftover.

Even if you like putting together IKEA furniture, you’ve gotta admit that it’s no walk in the park. It’s the ultimate test of a relationship.

And, now, it appears that it’s a good test for robots, too. A team of engineers at Nanyang Technological Institute in Singapore managed to program two state-of-the-art robotic arms to put together a STEFAN chair kit from a local IKEA, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal Science Robotics.

Robots can build cars. So they can easily build chairs.
