Looks great! finally robots doing something useful :lol:

IS this robot using the WillowGarage ROS framework ?
(They have also done some pretty impressive work with PR2 in the same area (folding towels etc)).

Yes, Cosero and Dynamaid use the ROS middleware.
We developed many own software components though, e.g.
for localization, object perception, person awareness, inverse kinematics, ...

You can find more details in an upcoming ECMR paper:

Why such the seemingly huge leap in capabilities this year? Was ROS key or did everything finally just come together.

There were some new features, like carrying a table or opening a bottle, but no huge leap in capabilities.
We used ROS already in 2010.
The key difference was that we had a more stable system and most tests worked as designed.
