Intel has unveiled a miniature PC that serves as a robot's "brain and eyes," which the chipmaker says will help to advance the commercialization of robots and drones.
The self-contained PC simplifies robotic design and
production by allowing developers to add a self-contained PC with sensors that
can detect motion and position in real time for video tracking and video.
According to a recent report, "Euclid looks much like
the Kinect camera for Xbox consoles, but it's a self-contained PC that can be
the guts of a robot. It's possible to install the Euclid computer where the 'eyes'
of a human-like robot would be typically placed."
TAKEAWAY TRENDIntel's Euclid demonstrates how advanced robotic systems are moving closer to mass commercialization as developers adopt a modular design approach.
