The creators of the OAK camera line launch a Kickstarter campaign to develop an open source robot for everyone: rae
LITTLETON, Colo., Nov. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxonis, a Colorado-based robotic vision platform, is delighted to introduce rae, its first fully-trained, high-powered personal robot. Backed by a Kickstarter campaign to aid its development, rae distinguishes itself by offering a multitude of features right out of the box, along with a unique degree of experimental programming potential that far exceeds other consumer robots on the market. The latest in a long line of innovations from Luxonis, rae is designed to make robotics accessible and easy for users of any experience level.
"rae is representative of our main goal at Luxonis: to make robotics accessible and easy for anyone, not just the tenured engineer with years of programming experience," said Brandon Gilles, CEO of Luxonis. "A long-standing truth about robotics is that the barrier to entry sometimes seems impossibly high, but it doesn't have to be. By creating the rae, we want to help demonstrate the kinds of positive impacts robotics can bring to everyone's life, whether it's something as simple as helping you find your keys, talking to your friend who uses American Sign Language, or playing with your kids.
At its core, rae is a first-class robot, and it packs AI, computer vision, and machine learning all into the device. Building on the technology of the brand's award-winning OAK cameras, rae offers stereoscopic depth, object tracking, motion estimation, 9-axis IMU data, neural inference, corner detection, motion zoom, and is fully compatible with DepthAI API. With state-of-the-art simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), rae can map and navigate unknown environments, and is pre-configured with ROS 2 to access its robust collection of software and applications.
Boasting a full suite of standard apps, the rae offers games like "follow me" and "hide away," and useful tools like QR/Barcode scanning, license plate reading, fall detection, time-lapse recording, emotion recognition, object search, sign language interpretation and a security alert mode. All applications can be controlled through the rae's mobile application, which users can use from anywhere in the world. They can also link to the Luxonis cloud platform, RobotHub, to manage customizations, download and install user-created apps, and collaborate with the Luxonis user community.
Crowdfunding campaigns and developing pioneering products that roboticists love is something that is in Luxonis' DNA, made evident by its established track record of two previous successful campaigns. Luxonis' first Kickstarter for the OpenCV AI Kit in 2021 raised $1.3 million from 6,564 backers, and the second for OAK-D Lite raised $1.02 million from 7,988 backers. With the support of robot enthusiasts and brand loyalists, as well as new sponsors such as educators, students and parents, the rae is on its way to making an impact as a revolutionary personal robot that is not limited to one niche. demographic.
Pricing for rae starts at $299, with international shipping available.
