Equip your robots with sensors, processors

Keywords:sensors for robotics? processor for robots? transistor integration in robotics?

Constructing a robot back in the "good old days" was a difficult, error-prone and time-consuming process. Sensing the environment was achieved with devices built from discrete components, many of which were never designed to effectively function together. The processors were small and lacking sufficient power to gather information from multiple sensors and subsequently process that information.

In the future, however, sensory technology integration will continue to mature, and the number of sensors that a robot can efficiently process will achieve a growth curve similar to Moore's Law.

CoroWare Technologies' Jon Mandrel discusses more about sensory technology integration in this article.
