Ken Goldberg and Jacobi Solving Singularities

Jacobi Robotics was founded in 2022 by a quartet of UC Berkeley robotics students, along with BCNM professor Ken Goldberg, with one specific problem in mind: singularities!

From the article:

“Singularities are the Achilles’ heel for industrial robots,” Jacobi notes. “In repetitive tasks, where the robot follows the same motions repeatedly and blindly, robots can be programmed to avoid singularities through weeks of tedious manual fine-tuning of robot paths. But for many robot applications, the robot paths must be modified periodically due to small changes in materials or thermal expansion.”
