This paper describes our recent progress in Desktop Robotics. It begins with a description of the application domain, and then describes progress in a few areas: a mobile manipulator called the em mobipulator, fast prototyping work culminating in the Palm Pilot Robot Kit, and work on time-optimal paths for diff drive robots.
