Solution

The robot (RapidArm) moves scanning for mail in the box. The vacuum gripper on the robot picks mails when pressure increases. The robot has been configured torque limits to ensure that if a package is not detected then the robot is able to navigate to a different area in the box until a mail is successfully picked up.
