Human-robot collaboration has always been a point of interest in the robot community, gaining traction as technology evolves. Human-robot collaboration promotes the idea that robots can become a part of human life in hospitals, restaurants, and homes. Effective human-robot collaboration releases humans from repetitive, dangerous tasks so they can devote energy to more sophisticated tasks.
Traffic monitoring sensors are crucial to intelligent transportation systems (ITS). Deployed at intersections, mid-blocks, and sidewalks—detecting the presence of road users, such as vehicles and pedestrians—the sensors are used for better signal timing.
Forming the next evolution of the Internet—the Metaverse is the concept of a fully immersive and universal virtual space for multi-user interaction, collaboration, and socializing. This concept of a blended shared space, whereby users can interact with each other in physical/virtual environments and extended reality (XR) in a seamless, immersive, and interactive way, has drawn enormous attention in both industry and academia.
Generative AI enables users to generate new content based on various inputs (including text, images, sounds, animation, 3D models, or other data types). By using neural network technology to identify the patterns and structures within existing data, generative AI creates new and original content. The technology can be a powerful tool for streamlining the workflow of creatives, engineers, researchers, scientists, and others—across all industries.
The ever-increasing demands for mobile broadband and expansion to vertical industries (automotive, satellite, internet of things) continue driving the development of wireless technology. The next major step in the evolution of 5G towards the sixth generation (6G) mobile networks is called 5G-Advanced.
Since the early decades of artificial intelligence (AI), humanoid robots have been a staple of sci-fi books, movies, and cartoons. After decades of research and development in AI, we are still a long way from having humanoid robots as part of daily life.
AI is already creating new things that are not just seen, copied, or synthesized in art, music, and video, and some AI is at a stage where human emotions can be understood, recognized, and used in real applications.
