Towards a Smart Future with AR, VR and Robotics

FREMONT, CA: As the robotics industry continues to grow, applications of robotic technology are being paired, with several other innovative technologies, including Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). In other words, the convergence of robotics with other industries is nowhere better seen, than AR and VR. The AR and VR environment is allowing interactions with holographic items, which were once thought, not to be possible in the real world. Using AR and VR technologies to train robots means talking to them in their native language, which will speed up the learning process and improve the way people and robots work together.

Also, motion sensors in AR and VR gaming can be deployed to train robots. Developers can use a pressure-sensitive trigger on a joystick to teach robots on how to control grasping and articulation speed for picking up objects. With the help of motion tracking technology in VR controllers, robots can analyze and learn various movement patterns.

AI-powered robots can learn how to group similar objects, differentiate various purposes, and identify items that look similar. By using VR trainer and developers can reduce cost and efforts required for collecting data and real-world objects. Robots can also be trained using 3D models to recognize biological structures in the human body.

VR and AR can be leveraged to develop teleoperating robots that can function with the help of multiple sensor displays. These robots can be operated remotely in factories that are potentially unsafe for workers. VR enabled robots to mimic the human brain that controls movement, observes images, and understand situations.

Several healthcare facilities are harnessing robots for surgeries and other care deliveries.  Surgical robots will witness an evolution with the advent of AR and VR, which enables perform operations on virtual patients for various medical conditions.

Developers believe that AR, VR and robotics may soon become mainstream in all businesses. Together, these technologies will help explore a new paradigm of human-machine interaction and make business procedures more precise and efficient.
