Выставка роботов в США. CES 2020. Самые крутые роботы и невероятные гаджеты!
The Consumer Electronics Show 2020,
as always, shocked with incredible technology, gadgets and robots.
And even if some of them seem unrealistic, this is the essence of CES:
look at the future of technology!
This is where you can see what will become mainstream in a couple of years.
Like and watch the most comprehensive review of the exhibition in one issue. Let's go!
Samsung brought several robotic solutions to the exhibition at once.
One of them was the Ballie home robot,
which many compared to the WW-8 from Star Wars.
A small, round, rotating robot can navigate in space
and combines the functions of a voice assistant, a surveillance camera
and a control center for a “smart” house. You can talk with him and give him tasks.
Another robot may notice that something was spilled on the floor,
and cause the robot to clean the garbage. Its capabilities will be constantly
expanded due to artificial intelligence and the scaling of the system of “smart” gadgets.
An unexpected premiere was the Vision S electric car concept from Sony.
Auto gathered all the technologies and developments of not only Sony,
but also partners: NVIDIA, BlackBerry, Bosch, Qualcomm and others.
Inside the cabin and on the Vision S body, 33 different sensors and sensors
are installed that monitor the cars on the road, potential interference and other objects around.
A widescreen display is installed on the dashboard in the cabin,
two more screens stand behind the head restraints for passengers.
The maximum speed is 230 km / h, acceleration to 100 km / h occurs in 4.8 seconds.
Other characteristics are not disclosed.
One thing is certain — the car is very similar to the Tesla Model 3.
And how did Elon Musk react to this? No way.
At this time, he danced like your drunk uncle at the opening of a new Tesla factory in China.
Probably suspecting that Sony will not soon launch its car on the market.
At CES 2020, the robotics company Sarcos presented its Guardian XO superpowers suit,
which we already talked about in one of our releases.
Any person can easily attach to a robotic exoskeleton, based on their own legs.
As a result, workers, military and warehouse staff will be able to lift
and move heavy loads without risk to health.
In contrast to the harsh exosuit, the BellaBot robot waiter was one of the cutest robots on display.
A robot from PuduTech with a cat face on a digital display and 4 shelves can deliver food
to tables in a restaurant, relying on its own positioning and navigation system,
as well as planning algorithms. BellaBot can change the expression of its face,
reacting both to words and to touch. Scratch his ear when he receives the order,
and he will purr like a real cat. But do not get carried away, because, as the developers assure,
he can "get angry, reminding that he needs to work."
Mercedes-Benz presented at the exhibition a completely crazy and fantastic concept AVTR.
The name is not in vain associated with the word "avatar".
According to the authors, the car will also allegedly be a continuation of the driver.
The car even has its own "living skin" — 33 bionic flaps, which can automatically open,
like gills in animals, and should give the car a sense of personality.
The car will be completely electric and autonomous —
there is not even a traditional steering wheel in the cabin, and all the controls are placed
on a huge display in the central panel.
But it was not Mercedes that won the innovation award, but Groove X and its LOVOT robot.
A companion robot can independently move around the house,
acting as emotional support and a source of happiness,
take pictures of users when they are smiling, work as a baby monitor
and go around the house as a guard. And all at a price of $ 3,000 plus a subscription of $ 80.
Of course, for the money you can put your Furby on a robot vacuum cleaner,
and then purchase, for example, Honda Civic.
Toyota, which only inserted its T-HR3 at the IREX in Japan,
brought it to Los Angeles. A robot based on NVIDIA GPU technology can smoothly move
and control its body using an advanced synchronization and maneuvering system.
T-HR3 is controlled by a human operator in a virtual reality headset,
receiving perception data through an NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier
computer integrated into the robot.
But the sensational robot avatar was not T-HR3,
but virtual people from Samsung’s NEON project.
The company has developed artificial intelligence that generates 3D models
of non-existent people — avatars. They can move, talk, show emotions
and act as virtual assistants. The technology was created at STAR Labs
and differs from deepfake and other methods of creating 3D models of people.
In the future, the company plans to license NEON avatars,
sell them to other companies as virtual assistants on sites, leading or even actors.
JARVISH startup at CES introduced a smart helmet designed for motorcycle drivers.
The system displays information about speed, navigation, weather, multimedia,
road signs and other data directly on the glass in real time.
The device can be connected to the voice assistant Amazon Alexa and give him commands.
It is likely that soon these helmets can be connected to the Internet
and surf with the help of them on the network with just the movement of an eye or voice.
Authentic EVO II, EVO II Pro and EVO II Dual drones from Autel Robotics
became a major release at CES. The EVO II drone captures 48 megapixel photos and 8K video.
But that's not all. A 7,000 mAh battery provides approximately 40 minutes of flight,
and 12 obstacle avoidance sensors make the drone as dexterous as Skydio 2.
Moreover, you can set up a virtual protective bubble around the drone
to better protect it from collisions.
At the same time, Autel announces speeds similar to the Mavic 2 Pro,
including the maximum speed of 72 km / h.
The EVO II Pro drone, although it shoots in 6K,
has an adjustable aperture, like the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and Mavic 2 Pro.
Finally, the EVO II Dual is a drone equipped with Boson's FLIR thermal camera
in addition to the 8K camera. All three drones have a range of up to 9 km,
8 GB of internal memory and are equipped with a controller with a built-in screen,
as well as the ability to connect the phone.
But the Doosan drone powered by the hydrogen fuel cell system won the innovation award.
The DS30 commercial drone with the DP30 frame
has an incredible flight duration of up to 120 minutes,
with a maximum payload of up to 5 kg.
Mix Pro Underwater Scooter Another Innovation Award from Sublue.
This is the smallest twin-engine underwater scooter on the market,
capable of speeds up to 1.8 m / s with battery life of up to 60 minutes.
High brightness color display shows power consumption and speed.
The waterproof case will protect your smartphone or camera,
which you can connect to capture your underwater adventures.
Agility Robotics brought to the exhibition its recently launched Digit robot.
A two-legged robot with a torso, arms and sensors, can stand up, if it falls, keep balance,
open doors and carry objects. We will definitely tell you more about it in the next issue.
Another robotic pet tried to create Elephant Robotics.
MarsCat is a fully autonomous bionic cat that responds to interaction.
He is able to feel touch, hear voices, see faces and play with toys.
But the most sensational robot in the media from the exhibition was RollBot,
whose only superpower is that it will deliver you a new roll of toilet paper,
if there is nobody else to do it. True, you need to put a roll on the head of the robot in advance.
In our opinion, a much more impressive technology was a bionic arm
with an artificial intelligence system from BrainCo.
An electronic device allows you to control the movements of an artificial arm with the power of thought.
Representatives of the company say that you can program six gestures
in just a few minutes and it's really cool!
At the Samsung booth this year, one could also see a pair of hands.
The kitchen assistant
There were 35 recipes to choose from.
After receiving the order, the robot rummaged through the cabinets in search of ingredients,
found them, took them with the necessary strength and removed the excess back.
At the same time, the robot prompted the recipe to its human assistant,
who performed a number of operations that are not yet available to the robot.
Using artificial intelligence and computer vision algorithms,
but also quickly learn new skills. For example, right during the robot’s presentation,
they taught us how to operate a coffee machine.
The hands of the robot are approximately equal in size to human,
have six degrees of freedom, have four joints and three fingers.
Would you buy those hands? Write in the comments.
Another robotic cook at the show was the Picnic robot,
capable of cooking up to 300 pizzas per hour. The Picnic modular system
is customizable according to customer needs, be it a large restaurant or a small cafe.
The robot has artificial intelligence that controls the composition and texture of pizza.
Deep machine learning and a computer vision system allow the robot to cook
any kind of pizza perfectly every time.
But the Gatebox gadget does not know how to cook,
but it can meet you at home with a joyful greeting.
The device works like a home assistant or a smart speaker,
but with a virtual interactive character that rejoices when you come home
and reminds you to take an umbrella if the weather forecast for today is not happy,
just like this winter.
A cool novelty for those who prefer to create robots themselves
is the PingPong robotic platform, the basis of which is the only module called “Cube”.
With the help of such cubes, each of which contains its own battery, engine and processor board,
you can assemble a walking, crawling or dancing robot.
The modules are connected via Bluetooth and are controlled by PingPong applications
for Android and iOS, or Scratch. Also, the robot can be programmed in Python.
Segway introduced the S-Pod and a comparison with WALL-E is simply inevitable here,
although the company claims that the capsules from Jurassic World served
as the inspiration for the development.
S-Pod is a cross between a comfortable chair, a scooter and a giant egg.
The new mobile device is designed to move people around territories such as shopping centers,
airports and theme parks (without dinosaurs).
The self-balancing device can reach speeds of up to 40 km / h
and is controlled by a small handle on the armrest.
Xiaomi Huami subsidiary introduced Amazfit HomeStudio at CES 2020.
The device includes a huge 43-inch "smart mirror" THE GLASS,
JBL speakers with surround sound and a treadmill.
A mirror, which is also a screen, can show thousands of exercises from its own library.
A 3D camera with a computer vision system during the exercise will monitor
your posture and technique.
Panasonic Corporation introduced the world's first virtual reality glasses
with support for UHD and High Dynamic Range (HDR).
In addition to new displays with OLED micropanels
and a record 4K image resolution, an interesting feature of the glasses
was the design in the steampunk style.
Another futuristic novelty was the invisible Samsung SelfieType keyboard.
The application uses a front camera and an artificial intelligence algorithm
to create a virtual keyboard based on the touch of a finger.
Agree, the idea is worthwhile, unless of course an omnipresent T9 is attached to it,
which will print its thoughts instead of yours.
But the prize for a funny idea will still not go to her,
and Younglingz Lil Flyer for a suitcase for transporting children.
If the idea of a family vacation seems like a nightmare to you,
because you cannot simultaneously control your luggage and a small child at the airport,
simply fasten it to this suitcase with what is called a seat belt for the look.
Our companies were at the exhibition.
Yandex brought its autonomous cars to Las Vegas and rode them all through the city streets
in a completely autonomous mode, which even American companies did not.
What can I say, well done!
Competition Yandex could create a car with a complete driving system LR DeepRoute,
but they did not ride journalists around the city.
The system itself fully embodies the idea of an autonomous car of the future.
LR DeepRoute is a complete set of solutions for robotic vehicles,
ranging from sensory solutions, sensing, planning and control, a real-time HD card,
a simulator to a cloud platform. The system has several hardware
and software protective mechanisms that ensure the safety
and stability of the automatic control system.
Distinguished at the exhibition and Promobot.
Having brought the latest version and a robot with the face of Arnold Schwarzenegger
to the booth, the company managed to sell both on the first day of the exhibition,
as well as conclude a contract for the supply of Promobots for work in the offices of San Francisco.
