Created an augmented reality system that allows you to control the actions of robots

Many modern robots are already developed enough to independently perform some highly specialized tasks. In most cases, without «aid» human robots still can not do. Therefore, improvements of the management systems to be less loaded and gave me the opportunity to understand even the untrained technician. This system based on augmented reality was recently presented by scientists from new York.

The Research team at new York University headed by Jared Alanno Frank developed a special augmented reality system that can run on a standard tablet computer or smartphone. The new development uses the camera of the device for environmental analysis, which projected virtual objects. The operator in this case can select any object and from the list of actions to give the robot a command to interact.

The System is developed on the basis of Xcode from Apple. She is able to recognize robots and determine their location relative to surrounding objects. The system then imposes on the space of the grid, which will be linked to all subsequent actions. Commands are processed with a miniature Raspberry Pi computer, and is sent via Wi-Fi.

At the moment, the technology to control robots with augmented reality has been tested only in laboratory conditions, but in the near future, scientists plan to conduct tests in conditions of construction and industrial production. Such tests will allow to identify gaps and make necessary adjustments. To see how it is managed, with the help of . According to the experts,

«Our system eliminates the need for expensive specialized equipment such as motion capture, is traditionally used in control systems for robots. We strive to ensure that any person who has never used relationships to robots and remote control technologies could take a tablet computer and successfully to do the job, absolutely not thinking about specific details».
