Robot learns archery, gains perfection in eight attempts

Humanoid robot iCub is learning the ways of the bow and the arrow. The robot kid has become quite an archer at the Italian Institute of Technology’s Advanced Robotics department. Researchers at the university taught the bot to shoot arrows, and employed algorithms and feedback from a camera to turn the iCub into a formidable archer. The robot managed to hit the center of a target 11.5 feet away in just eight tries.
