They include a drone that can be used in 3D building modelling and an intelligent vision system for robots
An all-wing drone that can take off by hand-throwing or catapult, and which can be used in 3D modelling of buildings and environmental monitoring, will be among the major breakthroughs in smart devices being showcased by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) at CES2018 in Las Vegas.
Other products include an intelligent family robot, a futuristic drone, a smart motorcycle dashboard, smart surgical glasses and an intelligent vision system for robots.
TAITRA aims to shine a spotlight on some of Taiwan’s most innovative companies and products at the show. The Taiwan trade organisation believes the innovations have the potential to dramatically improve people’s work and everyday lives and claims they are also advancing their respective industries by reimagining how the Internet of Things can improve and transform lives globally.
Taiwan has had a strong presence at CES over the years and the 2018 press conference will highlight the Silicon Island’s evolution in the consumer electronics industry, from its early prowess in hardware technology to creating some of today’s most cutting-edge AI, robotics, and IoT innovations. single sortie.
The organisation will unveil the following companies and technologies at the show:
Aeon Motor: transforming the rider experience, the Croxera Smart Dashboard is the future of UX in motorcycles. For the first time, the new dashboard provides riders with turn-by-turn display and voice navigation. It also offers IoT-related functions such as accident detection, reporting, and a full dynamic digital interface;
Geosat: weighing under five pounds, the Geosat Pterosaur is a portable all-wing drone that can take off by hand-throwing or catapult, depending on terrain, wind, and operation conditions, and the only one with a parachute to ensure a safe landing. It’s equipped with an auto-pilot flight control computer and can carry a 24 million-pixel camera, infrared camera, or multi-spectral sensor making it ideal for aerial photography, precision agriculture, and 3D modelling for buildings and environmental monitoring. It offers best in class air time and coverage up to 70 minutes and up to 1800 hectares in a single sortie;
ITRI: the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), one of the world’s leading technology R&D institutions, will showcase at CES 2018 AI-related solutions for smart homes and cities, such as a companion robot, portable pesticide residue detector, sleep monitor, intelligent battery system, and cloud-based video analytics for city surveillance. Its Intelligent Vision System (IVS) for companion robots and handheld pesticide residue detector are both CES 2018 Innovation Awards winners;
Robotelf Technologies: a CES 2018 Innovations Award winner, Robotelf is a next-generation artificial intelligence robot with a warm personality and rich expressions. Its advanced voice detection and facial recognition technology transcends all other robotic interactions. Its patented technology is the first to allow the head to swivel 90 degrees vertically, making it easy to operate while standing. And it’s the only family robot to have dual cameras -- one in front and one in back called Elf Eye, which doubles as a webcam, so you won’t have to worry about anything when you’re away from home;
Taiwan Main Orthopedics: redefining the future of surgery, the futuristic mixed reality smart surgical glasses are the first wearable glasses that assist in orthopedic navigation operations. Putting information right into the field of view of the surgeon at the point of care means that the surgeon no longer needs to look away from the patient and the surgical site to reference key information such as vital signs, fluoroscopy, and endoscopy video feeds, x-rays, CT/MRI scans, and so on.
