A desktop robot should be able to perceive the state of a desktop, to navigate the desktop, and manipulate objects commonly found on a desktop.
Our first system is a mobile robot which uses its wheels for manipulation as well as for locomotion. Imagine a small car planting its front wheels on a piece of paper, and using the rear wheels to drive the robot and the paper around. At the same time, if the front wheels are powered, the robot could use them to manipulate the paper.
