"Baxter has behavior-based intelligence in its operating system that, for example, allows the robot to know if it does something like drop a tool, which means it can't continue to do its job before retrieving the tool. Is that what you mean?"

Elizabeth, thanks for the explanation. I just asked about it in general.

To my understanding, Mydesign, Baxter has behavior-based intelligence in its operating system that, for example, allows the robot to know if it does something like drop a tool, which means it can't continue to do its job before retrieving the tool. Is that what you mean?

"You're welcome, Mydesign. So does this then limit the robot's ability to "see" and react to situations? I imagine there is other technology that is allowing the robot to be adaptive."

Elizabeth, according to your knowledge which are these other technologies?

With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
Enterprising Tesla Model S owner Steve Sasman seems to have figured out a way of recouping some of the cost on his car by renting the trunk out on AirBnB, the room/house rental website.
Everyone has had the experience of trying to scrape the last of the peanut butter or mayonnaise from the bottom of a glass jar without getting your hand sticky. Inventor Ron Jidmar thinks he has a solution to all of that nonsense with a flexible jar design that can be squeezed with one hand to lift contents from the bottom to the top of a jar or container, leaving the other hand free to scoop the contents out cleanly.
