Cloud artificial intelligence (AI) architecture developer CloudMinds Technology is showing its revolutionary XR-1 robot at Mobile World Congress in Los Angeles this week. XR-1 is one of the first-ever humanoid robots powered by cloud AI, commercial Sprint True Mobile 5G and proprietary vision-controlled grasping technology for service robots that also leverages human operator input for constant learning. “Overall, intelligent cloud robots paint the most vibrant picture of how 5G’s ultra-low latency, exponentially faster speeds and wider reach can dramatically improve response time and enable a new world of applications,” said Bill Huang, founder and CEO of CloudMinds. “With vision-controlled grasping and the ability to perform intricate tasks, the XR-1 simply raises the bar and lays the foundation for an even wider range of intelligent compliant cloud service robots from CloudMinds – from wheeled to two-legged form factors. We are proud to be ushering in a new era of helpful robots for homes and businesses, with an emphasis on the importance of human input.” XR-1 is claimed to be a highly intelligent service-oriented humanoid robot, representing a new level of technology development and commercialisation in the area of intelligent service robotics. Among the technologies in it are CloudMinds’s Cloud Brain a hybrid operating platform, a “Nerve Network” or ultra-secure intranet, a proprietary Smart Compliant Actuator (SCA) technology for precision grasping capabilities, and over 30 proprietary smart joints. Each robot body has a central control unit that controls the joints and sensors, and a robot controller that connects the robot to the Cloud Brain/HARIX platform through the secure Nerve Network. The robots are at the Sprint exhibit in the South Hall, #1702.
