Having a robot to help around the house has always been the dream of many, but one company called NXROBO based in Texas is hoping to bring that reality a little closer.
NXROBO has created the BIG-i, which they are calling the first personalised family robot and enables you to bring the convenience of the future into your home today. Check out the promotional video below to learn more about this new family robot.
The NXROBO BIG-i family robot is available to back Kickstarter with pledges starting from $749 for super early bird backers, with shipping expected to take place during April 2017. As developers explain a little more about the features, inspiration and functionality of the family robot they have created.
BIG-i is a natural-interaction robot with mobility, 3D vision , voice programming, and active perception. It can manage smart appliances to suit your needs. BIG-i can act as the bridge between family members. It will improve itself, becoming more and more thoughtful and intelligent through your instructions. Even when you are away, BIG-i will still take care of your loved ones. BIG-i takes charge of the small daily grind so you are free to enjoy every precious moment. It means everyone feels the love and the strong bond of the family.
BIG-i receives your requirements through voice programming, and translates your requirements into text through speech recognition. With the help of semantic analysis, it can understand the trigger conditions then submit them to the system. After that, BIG-i will call the corresponding sensory “organs” to detect if the condition is matched. When the answer is positive, BIG-i will call the appropriate skills to perform tasks and meet customer needs.
Through adapting its various skills, BIG-i is capable of doing all kinds of things. Once it receives a voice command, it will analyze every word to understand the need. Then it will use its perception system to detect the surrounding environment. If all the conditions are matched, it will carry out the task automatically to meet the need. The three key technologies are the cornerstone to make it possible.
