VILNIUS, Lithuania, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Neurotechnology, a provider of robotics and high-precision object recognition and biometric identification technologies, today announced the introduction of the SentiBotics Development Kit. SentiBotics includes a mobile robotic platform with a 3D vision system, modular robotic arm and accompanying Neurotechnology-developed, ROS-based software with complete source code. Documentation features detailed descriptions of the robotics algorithms. The programming samples included in the robotics development kit demonstrate a number of capabilities, including how to teach the robot to recognize and grasp objects and how to use the robot to create a map of the local environment that the robot can then use for autonomous navigation in the learned environment.
Based on years of dedicated robotics research and algorithm development, Neurotechnology's SentiBotics Development Kit provides researchers, academic institutions, robotics developers and hobbyists with a "ready-to-go" mobile robotic platform that can dramatically reduce the time and effort required to create the necessary infrastructure, hardware, component tuning and software functionality required for research and development of robots. All platform components can be easily obtained from manufacturers and suppliers worldwide, so developers can use SentiBotics as reference hardware to build their own units or to incorporate different platforms and materials.
"We designed SentiBotics to be a compact, integral and computationally capable robotics system that allows our customers to rapidly test their ideas in real world environments," said Dr. Povilas Daniusis, leader of the Neurotechnology robotics team. "With the included software, SentiBotics not only provides working examples of autonomous navigation, object recognition and grasping algorithms, it also allows users to immediately concentrate on their own algorithm development."
SentiBotics robot hardware includes the following components:
SentiBotics software includes source code with the following components that are tuned to work with the SentiBotics hardware platform:
The SentiBotics Development Kit also includes:
SentiBotics and the entire line of Neurotechnology products for AI, robotics, object recognition and biometric identification are available through Neurotechnology or from distributors worldwide. For more information, go to: www.Neurotechnology.com.
Neurotechnology is a provider of high-precision biometric fingerprint, face, iris, palmprint and voice identification algorithms, object recognition technology, artificial intelligence/robotics and software development products. Neurotechnology's identification algorithms have consistently earned the highest honors in some of the industry's most rigorous competitions. Today more than 2500 system integrators, security companies and hardware providers integrate Neurotechnology's algorithms into their products, with millions of customer installations worldwide.
Drawing from years of academic research in the fields of neuroinformatics, image processing and pattern recognition, Neurotechnology was founded in 1990 in Vilnius, Lithuania and released its first fingerprint identification system in 1991. Since that time the company has released more than 80 products and version upgrades for identification and verification of objects and personal identity.
In 2004 Neurotechnology founded its artificial intelligence (AI) division and the company began research and development of mobile autonomous robots, associated algorithms and software. In 2014 Neurotechnology began commercializing their robotics technology with the introduction of the SentiBotics Development Kit.
