Another chess playing robot project (with video)

Here's a chess playing robot from Brazil, a research project.


A camera captures snapshots of the board so it can keep track of pieces and their location:

Some details here (in Portuguese) http://www.numa.furg.br/scara.htm

If you want to see the video, you either get in ZIP format from them here:

Or download the AVI (playable) file from the site here: (16Mb)

The video is 2:15 min long and show the robot playing against a human using a regular chess board. They use two computers for this. One is dedicated to processing the vision system.

But, it's another project that I don't think will become a commercial product.
