A system of augmented reality that allows to control the actions of robots
Many of today's robots are already developed enough to independently perform some specific tasks. In the majority of cases without the "help" human robots still can not do. Therefore, the improved control system, so that they are the least loaded and allowed to understand even an inexperienced technician. It is a system based on Augmented Reality recently presented by scientists from New York.
The research group at New York University, led by Jared Alannom Frank developed a specialized system of augmented reality, which can run on conventional tablet PC or smartphone. The new development uses devaysa camera to analyze the environment to which the projected virtual objects. The operator in this case can select any object from the list of actions to command the robot to interact.
The system is designed on the basis of Xcode from Apple. It is able to detect robots and determine their location in relation to the objects of the world. Next, the system imposes on the space of the grid to which will be attached and all subsequent actions. Commands are processed by means of a miniature Raspberry Pi computer and transmitted by means of Wi-Fi. At the moment, robot control technology with the help of augmented reality has been tested only in laboratory conditions, but in the near future, scientists plan to conduct tests in the conditions of construction and industrial production. These tests will help identify gaps software and make the necessary adjustments. Familiarize yourself with how the control can be by a special video. According to the experts themselves,
"Our system eliminates the need for expensive specialized equipment, such as a motion capture system, traditionally used in robot control systems. We strive to ensure that any person who never had any relationship to robots and remote control technologies can take a tablet computer and successfully carry out the work, it is not thinking about the specific details.
