Devices will be able to map their environment, travel autonomously, communicate with each other, and monitor their internal contents
AI Incorporated, a robotics and artificial intelligence research company, has announced it is developing an autonomous refuse receptacle robot.
The Toronto-based start-up plans to use its simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) technology combined with deep learning to help pioneer a new generation of mobile robotic devices.
The autonomous refuse receptacle robot is one application for the company’s versatile self-localising autonomous platforms (VSLAP).
According to AI Incorporated, its new robot proprietary software called the ’quantum slam operating system’ helps companies mobilise any given machine. With this autonomous device, replacing full refuse containers will require less intervention on the part of individuals.
When full, the bins will automatically leave their post and empty ones will be sent to replace them.
The system utilises multiple robotic devices each of which contains a comprehensive navigation system using a combination of SLAM, deep reinforcement learning, and computer vision, the company reports.
These devices will be able to map their environment, travel autonomously, communicate with each other, and monitor their internal contents with an extensive array of sensors.
“Robots are best suited to partake in the work that humans do not wish to conduct,” said Ali Afrouzi, CEO of AI Incorporated and bObsweep Inc.
“Not only will these devices be able to navigate themselves, but by autonomously providing this perpetual service to the end user, no lapse in service will ever exist. A continuous service that will ease the lives of individuals in all walks of life.”
AI Incorporated is a tech company that specialises in autonomous robotic devices. AI Incorporated offers Q-OS which is a SLAM enabled operating system to companies requiring smart mobile platforms.
It also provides versatile self-localising autonomous platform devices to facilitate autonomy for companies that need it.
