With next years CES 2017 technology show edging ever closer one company has already won a 2017 CES Innovation Award, and takes the form of the world’s smallest portable camera robot which has been created by Amaryllo.
The pocket-sized camera is equipped with multicore processors and is equipped with what its developers call a “ smart brain” and enabling it to carry out real-time video analytics. check out the video below to learn more about this award-winning camera which is expected to be made available to the public early next year.
The Koova is available to back via Kickstarter and is available from $159 for earlybird backers with shipping expected to take place during January 2017. The developers of the robot camera explain more about its inspiration, features and construction.
Amaryllo is ranked as worldwide number-one camera robot company by research institutes. Koova 2 is the proud winner of 2017 CES Innovation Award! This is the consecutive 3rd year that Amaryllo has won this prestigious honor. Koova 2 is the world’s smallest camera robot that comes with auto tracking and facial recognition. It is portable and powered by USB power source. You can use it anywhere.
With embedded powerful multi-core CPUs, Koova 2 is an intelligent camera robot that has a smart “brain” to perform real-time video analytics so it can track intruders and recognize faces to safeguard your home 24 hours a day. In fact, the toughest challenge for the engineering team during the development of Koova 2 is how to squeeze in the powerful multi-core CPUs in the small housing and take care of heat dissipation issues.
Amaryllo team was faced with a dilemma: using powerful multi-core CPUs generates a lot of heat, but the housing need to be kept small, so there isn’t a lot of room for the heat to dissipate. After many trial and errors, Amaryllo engineering team finally came up with a solution: fabricate the back cover using aluminium metal to act as a heat sinker and re-arrange our PCB layers for the CPUs to directly contact the aluminium to quickly dissipate heat. This ingenious solution enables us to pack many powerful functions in Koova 2 such as facial recognition and auto-tracking, yet still keep it in a very small form factor.
