Evolution Robotics has introduced the ER2 multi-purpose personal robot to showcase its new Evolution Robotics Software Platform (ERSP) which features a new control architecture, breakthrough vision and navigation software components.

The ER2 exhibits new technologies including robotic vision, enhanced navigation using a system known as vSLAM (visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping), a new object recognition system that can be trained to recognize objects using a single camera and human-robot interaction technologies for the home and workplace.

Key applications expected to spring from the new technology include a number of applications for the home or workplace including security, video-conferencing and tele-presence, entertainment, child education, and training or personal assistance programs.
