Robotic Gift Wrapping or a Glance at the Present State in Santa's Workshop

Abstract
This work presents a robotic implementation of Christmas gift wrapping. Handling paper is a challenging task for an industrial robot as it easily tears and folds in unexpected ways. In this application, a dual-arm industrial robot with simple two-finger grippers was used, and the robot was programmed using a standard position-based approach. The wrapping was accomplished with the help of plastic spatulas, and although the speed of the final wrapping was slower than an average human, the gift wrapper application became a success on its tour around Sweden during the Christmas commerce 2015.
