FabricFlowNet: Bimanual Cloth Manipulation with a Flow-based Policy

Cloth manipulation is a challenging task for robot manipulation as fabrics do not transform rigidly when manipulated. A recent paper introduces FabricFlowNet, a goal-conditioned policy for bimanual cloth manipulation that uses optical flow to improve policy performance. Image credit: Pxfuel, Free licence An optical flow-type network is used to estimate the relationship between the current observation and a sub-goal. The ...
