Teaching Robots To Move by Sketching Trajectories
Getting robots to perform even a simple task requires tons of behind-the-scenes work. Part of the challenge is planning and executing movements, everything from turning wheels to lifting a robotic arm. To make this happen, roboticists collaborate with programmers to develop a set of trajectories - or pathways - that are clear of obstacles and doable for the robot.

Engineering household robots to have a little common sense
With help from a large language model, MIT engineers enabled robots to self-correct after missteps and carry on with their chores. From wiping up spills to serving up food, robots are being taught to carry out increasingly complicated household tasks. Many such home-bot trainees are learning through imitation; they are programmed to copy the motions that a human physically guides them through.

Q&A: Helping robots identify objects in cluttered spaces
Imagine a coffee cup sitting on a table. Now, imagine a book partially obscuring the cup. As humans, we still know what the coffee cup is even though we can't see all of it. But a robot might be confused. Robots in warehouses and even around our houses struggle to identify and pick up objects if they are too close together, or if a space is cluttered.
