Our air hockey robot is lightweight, cable-driven, and can hit a puck with real speed. The robot has been completely developed by fourth year students, and work is ongoing to improve its capabilities! The robot builds on our previous work playing air hockey with the Panda robot arm.

Photos and videos of the new robot are coming soon!
In the meantime, here is a video of our previous air-hockey robot:
