It all began with a tiny machine just smart enough to sneak around the house picking up trash. The future of robotics is a brave new world crafted by visionary engineers and developers at firms like anki.com and Robots for humanity. Consumer robotics, where artificial intelligence and robots are ubiquitous and often invisible forever change the way we live work and play.
Say hello to the smart house
It isn’t as far fetched as you might think. Just a few years from now saying hello to your house or apartment will be how you open the door. Sensors and AI programming will let your home perform a wide range of tasks for you. Integrated with high tech consumer robotics, the house will recognize and welcome your family and friends with open doors. Strangers will be asked politely to wait while the house tells you someone is at the door.
Much of the technology for smart homes is in use today. Computers and software, sensors and controls will work unobtrusively in the background to manage lighting, environmental controls and the various appliances inside your home. Doors will open as you approach and the lights and climate controls activate when you come into the room. Robotics, remote sensing and smart data management technology will give your smart home senses, manual dexterity and intelligence to anticipate your needs and respond to your wishes.
