Robot Assembles Ikea Chair Faster Than Any Happy Couple

Another day, another robot doing human tasks. These robotic arms programmed by engineers from Singapore can put together a STEFAN Ikea chair kit in a remarkably fast time. 

The two robotic arms used 3D cameras and force sensors to quickly assemble a chair, with no instructions in sight. The engineers simply laid out the individual pieces in a random pattern, and the robots went to work.

To achieve this, the robotic arms had to be outfitted with pressure sensors because industrial robots can pack a punch and the process of setting up the chair can be a little delicate. And in 8 minutes, 55 seconds, the chair was completely made.
