Interview with Rick Weidinger, CEO of Robotic Vision Technologies
A human eye transmits data to the brain at a rate of approximately 10 million bits a second, which is about the equivalent of the capacity of some Ethernet connections.
This was the finding of a study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and while that may be debatable, and perhaps doesn’t tell the whole story of the complexity of the human eye, it’s probably a widely accepted idea that our eyes collect and transmit more data than do our other “sensors”, if they can be called that – the ones for sound, touch, smell and taste – which, with sight, make up our five human senses.
Robots, of course, only have senses because their makers want to integrate sensors into them. [Read more…] about Interview: Robotic Vision Technologies boss eyes growth of global collaborative robotics market
