With the increasing level of intelligence and motion control being achieved in modern robotics, as well as the steady expansion of the industry into many more consumer markets, it s was not surprising to see that this year’s Robot World event in South Korea was incredibly well attended.
We enjoyed a great deal of interest in our joint venture with Synapticon; the XMOS Motor and Motion Control development kit. Along with this, we were also able to demonstrate a couple of the many successful commercial robotics applications using our technology, such as the Robugtix Spider and the Synapticon SOMANET powered Yujin GoCart.
The Yujin GoCart is a fantastic piece of technology. One of the first service robots onto the market to use the game-changing SLAM (Simultaneous Location And Mapping) technology, which enables it to always know exactly where it is, where it’s been, where it needs to go, but most importantly, how to get there. It can intelligently decide this in real-time whilst avoiding permanent or temporary obstacles!
