This paper is about sensing and manipulation strategies using simple, modular robot hardware. RISC robotics is an attempt to fuse automation and robotic technologies. It uses traditional automation hardware such as parallel-jaw grippers and optical beam sensors, together with geometric planning and sensing algorithms. RISC systems should be cost-e ective and reliable, and easy to setup and recon gure. They should also be exible enough to support small batch sizes and rapid changes in partdoi:10.1002/rob.4620120603 fatcat:4yc4ffrw6za5lc72awes7rwxmm
