A touch of R in Robotics

Over the years, the R community has experienced an increase in the number, diversity and domain background of users. However, incorporation of R in the field of Robotics is still not fully exploited even though the actuation of manipulators such as robotic arms is based on streams of input data gathered from sensors. With R constantly evolving and redefining how to turn data into actionable insights, any domain that produces data now has the potential to use R. What if this actionable insight means actuating a robotic arm? The aim of this talk is to connect two previously separated worlds: robotic application development and the data manipulation capabilities of R by demonstrating how to actuate a Robotic arm using R and Arduino.
