Robots can read in the darkness.
That’s according to researchers at the University of Michigan, who have created an automated, robot-based vision system that uses a smartphone app to scan the scene.
The system is called TheRobot.
The team says it’s a big step forward for the field, and they’ve even built an app that lets people check out the results.
“It’s a really neat approach that I think has the potential to make the field much more accessible,” says lead author Dr. Christopher Johnson.
It all started with the need to figure out how to read a book.
“We had this really cool problem that we wanted to solve and we figured out a really cool way of doing it,” he says.
So he started developing an app for iOS, Android, and WebOS that would recognize objects that people interact with.
It works with your phone’s screen, but the problem is that it requires your phone to be connected to your computer or your TV.
To make the system work, the researchers developed a new app that would automatically detect objects and use it to scan for text.
The app is now being used in universities around the world.
To read a novel, the robot needs to detect when it sees text, and that requires a smartphone to scan that text.
When the robot is working alone, it can scan for a word and look up a description.
When it comes to scanning objects, the app can look up images that it knows how to use, and it can use that information to make decisions about what to read.
The researchers are currently working on a more sophisticated vision system, which would be able to scan a larger set of images than just text.
But for now, it’s working with a relatively small set of objects to determine what they should read.
“The robot’s working on it,” Johnson says.
