While deep learning methods have proven useful for autonomous navigation, the approach requires vast amounts of data and computing power, and produces solutions that are inefficient, fragile and unaffordable for many classes of applications. Opteran’s “Natural Intelligence” approach, based on the function of insect brains, provides an alternative for generating complex, autonomous behaviors for machines.
Inspection and service work in underground tunnels is the poster child for work that is “dirty, dull and dangerous”. It is also time consuming and costly. MAB Robotics is meeting the challenge with a compact, ruggedized, quadrupedal robot.
GUSS Automation’s autonomous, precision orchard spraying solution provides growers with a rapid ROI, along with other benefits such as simplified operations, increased efficiency, enhanced safety and reduced labor costs.
It is advanced software, working in conjunction with hardware systems, that has driven the commercial drone sector to new heights. Similarly, software is the key capabilities enabler for other types of robotics systems going forward, including mobile robots.
