ID, ME & prototyping for a home service robot
Since 2008, Pilotfish has collaborated on a number of research projects with the national Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan (ITRI).
The service robot Roppie uses 'Eye to Motion' technology, smartly translating images from an integrated camera into corresponding actions. The blue patches on his body hide a collection of sensors that convert physical interaction into digital input. The result is shown through two LCD displays on the robot's face and chest, used to tell emotion and output information respectively.
