The National University of Singapore (NUS), a member of the Intel Neuromorphic Research Community (INRC), has presented new research demonstrating the promise of event-based vision and touch sensing in combination with Intel neuromorphic processing for robotics. (See video below.)
The work highlights how bringing a sense of touch to robotics can significantly improve capabilities and functionality compared to today’s visual-only systems and how neuromorphic processors can outperform traditional architectures in processing such sensory data.
Mike Davies, director of Intel’s Neuromorphic Computing Lab, says: “This research from National University of Singapore provides a compelling glimpse to the future of robotics where information is both sensed and processed in an event-driven manner combining multiple modalities.
