A preprint of our paper on the design of Stretch just became available on arXiv.
The Design of Stretch: A Compact, Lightweight Mobile Manipulator for Indoor Human Environments, Charles C. Kemp, Aaron Edsinger, Henry M. Clever and Blaine Matulevich, arXiv, 2021.
If it becomes a published, peer-reviewed work, I’ll provide an update.
On a related note, I recently gave a 15-minute talk at Georgia Tech on Stretch’s academic backstory.
