The robot will be launched on the market next May, but only in 100 pieces
Androids will soon replace many of the jobs that man is currently doing, it is now a certain fact. And more and more companies are advancing in this sector, like Syrius Robotics, Nvidia and JD Logistics, who jointly presented a humanoid robot capable of autonomously managing the work of a warehouse. According to the Tencent website, QQ, only 100 will be put up for sale starting next May with a price of 98,000 yuan each.
The mechanism of function of the humanoid robot is based on sensors and actuators, which allow the machine to move safely with a good human-computer interaction. A large capacity battery allows operation for 10 hours. Furthermore, the self-winding battery and the replaceable battery design also guarantee continuous operation.
The Syrius team has also developed software and algorithms for the robot
The collaboration between different companies also took place because various skills and high-level mechanics were used to create the robot. Syrius’ team, for example, has also developed software and algorithms for the robot, but based on the Nvidia Jetson TX2 intelligent machine platform, including a multisensory merging algorithm. Hence the perception and technology of semantic understanding, based on neural networks, which allows the robot to probe the real world. Syrius AMR – cluster management software and a cloud service – are optimized for the sorting process in electronic commercial warehouses.
JD.com could also enter into economic participation with Syrius in future projects
The courier unit of the e-commerce giant JD.Com is also exploring the possibility of capital cooperation with Syrius, as confirmed by Zhang Zhou, director of investment at JD Logistics. According to information available from Qixinbao, Syrius recently raised tens of millions of yuan in a pre-A fundraising, with FutureCap becoming the largest investor.
