Nvidia opened the doors to its new robotic lab in Seattle last week and ushered in a new era for the company. This has made the competition known.
The 13,000-foot Seattle facility is an innovation center for 50 people. One of her first projects is a joint project with IKEA, which includes a domestic robot designed to assist people in the kitchen.
The competition may create devices that can perform incredible acrobatics:
Or sweet dance movements:
But we think the first company Developing a robot for making sandwiches and serving drinks in a consumer's kitchen will likely win the home robotics game.
Therefore, there is an argument that Nvidia moves in the field of robotics It is worth paying attention to. Industry analysts seem to think that this is the tonic for what hurts the company, after it had the worst performance in the S & P 500 in the last quarter.
The company's performance in the last quarter has been disappointing. but not surprising. MarketWatch sees Nvidia as a "favored but injured" stock, and that sums up the company's last 12 months.
For those unfamiliar with chip manufacturers' latest forecasts outside graphics cards, Nvidia Ritt is the cryptocurrency to the top. The demand for graphics cards used in cryptocurrency mining facilities has become so great within the cryptocurrency community that it has led to bottlenecks in 2017.
However, the bottom came out of the cryptocurrency market in 2018 and Nvidia saw a sharp decline in its graphics card sales. With a dead zone for product sales as the company unveiled its latest generation of graphics cards, Nvidia ended for investors in December to forget it.
At the same time, the Nvidia Kv researchers had spent the last year impressing the world with one amazing revelation after another. This culminated in the opening of the company's KI lab in Toronto last September.
It could easily be assumed that the company is targeting the production of consumer electronics, especially home robots, between the two recently established sites. 19659002] CCNs Melanie Kramer writes that the institution's IKEA kitchen laboratory indicates that its research will be "translated into Nvidia products". But chances are good that these products like their graphics cards are under the hood.  It's hard to figure out a case where Nvidia can expand its current operations to mass-produce its own robots. However, one can not imagine developing maps and software for any number of external robotic manufacturers – basically the same now as with graphics and PC builders.
Although the kitchen robots mentioned above are still a bit unclear, that's what it is. The company calls a "Cobot". Nvidia's new director of robotics in Seattle, Dieter Fox, told VentureBeat that these are the following:
The kind of robots that will pop up, which I think are like the next generation of robots, the robot Being able to do manipulation tasks next to people, which means a lot more unstructured environment robots that help, for example, people with physical disabilities, can help us robots that can be used in our homes with everyday tasks, even with cooking tasks or the like, but also in the production.
There is likely to be an outdoor shot revealed to the "Nvidia Cobot" at CES in the 2020s – your guess is as good as any at this time. Although Cobob is a little too close to Gobot if you ask us.
The real problem is that although experts predict that they are just around the corner, native robots are still science fiction at the time. Anything more complex than a Roomba usually only exists in a lab environment.
For those of us who are longing for a future when robots wash dishes, the company's entry into the field of home robotics is at least good news. There are few companies that are more apt to light a fire under the chassis of all sorts of competitors than Nvidia.
We have contacted Nvidia for further comments and will update this article if necessary.
