Voice Assisted Appliances

When returning to work, kitchen and break room soon will be the high traffic-areas during lunch time. The voices assisted appliances will help employees feel more safe to eat their meals as the appliances will require less cleaning with harsh chemicals which will prevent contamination to meals. The main advantage with voice activated appliances is that they use one of the most natural of human behaviors to command, interact, and monitor your appliances. Speaking is something almost everyone can do, and it requires no learning curve.

Our systems integrate existing appliances with voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple Siri to control appliances with just your voice. These appliances can range from coffee maker, water dispenser, microwave, etc.

Visual SLAM Accelerator

In augmented intelligence, a common business problem is how to make a machine or robot move around and perform tasks. For this purpose, the machine or robot needs to have an idea of its location in the environment that it is in. This problem is resolved by using simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). SLAM is a computational problem for constructing a map of an unknown area while still knowing where the machine or robot exists in the map.

There are various algorithms done to tackle this problem. But in a general sense, a sensor such as LiDAR or camera is used and data from these sensors are stitched together to form a map known as mapping process. The same sensor afterward can be used to figure out where it is on the map by performing a suitable matching algorithm know as localization. After performing the two, the machine or robot will have a sense of where it is in a local space. In this particular instance, because we are using a camera to perform SLAM, it is known as Visual SLAM or VSLAM..

Once the machine or robot has knowledge of its location, navigation and other tasks become accessible. Like SLAM, navigation has many different algorithms for path planning. By choosing from a range of algorithms for following waypoints to others like A*, the machine can move around the map.

We have chosen one of the open source SLAM algorithms and applied it for creating a map used in many augmented intelligence applications. By using one RGB-Depth camera, it is capable of creating a dense pointcloud of an area. This pointcloud can be used in various applications such as surveillance robots, exploration of unknown places, and terrain mapping.

Applications:

  • Creating 3D models of real space
  • Creating 3D models for virtual reality
  • Creating 3D models of game environments
  • Perception for machine, robot, and drone applications

Edge Intelligence System

In the AI driven era, augmented intelligence is being used to describe how AI is going to interact with people; not through replacing them, but through improving what they already know. While the system can learn without human intervention, augmenting it with the user’s decision-making process and capabilities by providing deep insights which are otherwise hidden or inaccessible. This level of intelligence from machines learning from human interaction creates even a powerful set of actionable intelligence for businesses to act upon.

The AI system competency development is to design and deploy augmented intelligence capabilities into products and services. The key competencies include autonomous system architecture for reinforcement learning neural network, edge computing processors, sensor fusion, and natural language processing. It begins with developing and deploying an autonomous edge stack for mobility, machines, and equipments that interact easily with humans in multiple industry domains.
