A Tightly Integrated System Processing Architecture for Next Generation Robotics with Dyson (click for more details)
The next generation of domestic robots will mark a revolutionary change in capability. Current mass market, home based robots are restricted to vacuuming on a single floor level. The latest variants perform this role very effectively, but customer expectations are for much greater functionality. This will be enabled by the evolution of high fidelity 3-d sensing, anthropomorphic actuation suited for domestic environments, scene semantics provided by artificial intelligence, and ever massively-increased embedded processing power. Evidently, we have constituent components which should fuel game-changing domestic robots in the next few years.
