Graspy Learns to Read

Using a PR2 from Willow Garage they named Graspy, students from the University of Pennsylvania, have given Graspy the ability to read short texts. This is actually a difficult task as words can come in a variety of fonts the robot must learn to recognize. The code is open source and can be downloaded from ROS.org.
