"Baxter has behavior-based intelligence in its operating system that, for example, allows the robot to know if it does something like drop a tool, which means it can't continue to do its job before retrieving the tool. Is that what you mean?"

Elizabeth, thanks for the explanation. I just asked about it in general.

To my understanding, Mydesign, Baxter has behavior-based intelligence in its operating system that, for example, allows the robot to know if it does something like drop a tool, which means it can't continue to do its job before retrieving the tool. Is that what you mean?

"You're welcome, Mydesign. So does this then limit the robot's ability to "see" and react to situations? I imagine there is other technology that is allowing the robot to be adaptive."

Elizabeth, according to your knowledge which are these other technologies?
