Intel researchers are creating technology designed to enable robots such as HERB to quickly detect an entity and then quickly recognize it. The technology shown here will help robots recognize people, an important capability for robots that will interact with humans. The technology, which uses RGB-D cameras and new vision sensors, is very new and will be incorporated into HERB soon.
One of the key issues in data centers today is the rising consumption of power. With Project Fawn, Intel researchers are looking to see if certain workloads can be run more efficiently by replacing a few traditional servers with more, smaller and lower-power nodes running Intel’s Atom chip. Much of the project’s focus in developing ways that software can work well in such hardware environments.
12Connected Home 2020
Intel Lab’s project is investigating the appropriate architectures for the digital homes of the future, looking at a cloud-based approach to the delivery of wireless services. Intel is developing visualization algorithms for the disparate networks that offer services within the home, including WiFi, Zigbee and z-wave. The project touches upon diagnosing the wireless services and controlling access to the networks.
Honey bees are crucial to the health of crops such as cranberries, and the flight activities of the bees are a key indicator of the colony’s strength and condition. Intel researchers are creating a video monitoring system that would enable farmers to monitor arrivals and departures at the hive entrance, record the data and then analyze it. Pictured is a display of a monitor on a hive. On the panel are videos of bees.
