Microsoft seeking robots to help automate datacenters

Sounds fairly easy

to me.

Take 1 rack of servers, attach a target above each reboot button, strap a vision system to the robot's hand so it can locate the target and an air operated plunger below the camera presses the reboot button once the robot arm is in position.

On the other side of the hand would be the HDD removal/replacement tool. using the same sort of target/camera system to locate itself.

There all your DC problems sorted and not a fleshy meatbag in sight
