Intel Labs Reveals Technology Trends for Home Robots during Robotics Industry Forum
Key drivers are emerging this year that will enable affordable home robots, according to Dieter Fox, Director of the Intel Labs Seattle and Associate Professor in the Computer Science & Engineering Department at the University of Washington, Seattle. One is a new, $100 camera enhanced with depth perception. Another factor is a shift from development of mechanics, which is fairly mature, to new and improved algorithms, or as he put it “silicon.”
These and other observations are addressed on RIA’s blog site, Robots in America, in the post, “Intel Labs May Help Bring Personal Robots to Your Home … Soon.” See what else he had to say and share your thoughts on emerging robot trends.
Brian Huse blogs regularly for RIA, He has been with Robotic Industries Association since 1994. In a "walkabout" of the industry that started in 1998, he worked for member companies Deneb (now DELMIA) and Norgren Automotive; a four-year stint in which he was immersed in the business of software and hardware manufacturing for the robotics industry. Armed with a greater appreciation for the needs of RIA’s members and their publics, he rejoined the Association in 2001 and has responsibility for membership, marketing and public relations.
