Abstract

Clothes are very important for daily life. We always wash, dry, and fold them for maintenance of clothes. Washing and drying were already automated. However, folding isn't automated. Automation of folding clothes is expected for not only industry, but also home use. Unfortunately, folding system for home use is not perfect yet. A folding system is implement with normal table and small mobile robots which developed in this study. There are clothes and the camera on the table, because it can be provided only narrow space for this system while use in homes. In this paper, we proposed folding motion with edge of table and automated the folding system considering limit of work space.
