This presentation summarizes the experiences gained from evaluating the robot home assistant Care-O-bot 3 in two application scenarios: supplying drinks in residential care facilities and delivering objects in a typical home environment. The main challenges for vision based manipulation where: safely transferring objects to humans, detecting and locating objects and persons and grasping detected objects reliably. Major difficulties were the different lighting conditions as well as the space requirements for manipulation and grasping. Different strategies for dealing with failures in autonomous task execution using teleoperation were presented.
