Fujitsu is demonstrating their stereo vision module, which extracts feature points from the image to calculate 3D depth perception in 31ms, builds maps with obstacle detection, pattern recognition, and detects motion of shapes and objects. The chip measures 120x100x40mm and consumes 13W, and comes with image processing libraries and sample programs.
They brought along their service robot ENON to demonstrate its capabilities, which has been slightly remodeled. Fujitsu has replaced the storage space in its trunk with more batteries which allows the robot to function autonomously for up to 8 hours. The 5 degree of freedom arms have also been replaced by stubs which have an LED indicator in them, making for a slimmer and more practical robot.
