Pepper to Kuka, R2R Collaboration
In March 2016, Softbank opened a Pepper Phone shop - a mobile phone shop run entirely by Pepper robots, for 2 days.
In this shop, Pepper ordered IIWA ( an industrial robot arm by KUKA) to pick up a present from the shelf and give it to a customer. We were in charge of handling the communication between Pepper and IIWA. Usually we build communication between humans and robots so making a robot to robot communication was a new experience for us.
