Paper Abstract

A compact, portable dual manipulator robot has been constructed to solve Rubik's CubeTM. The robot system reads the color pattern from the scrambled cube faces, computes a solution, and executes the manipulations required to return each cube face to a uniform color. The vision, mechanical manipulator, and microprocessor control subsystems will be discussed in conjunction with the solution algorithm.
