I was impressed at what the digital CMOS sensor-based camera made by the parent company can do: it's got a 360-degree panoramic view. But that's not used in the Ferret--that one is a CCD sensor-based camera with (apparently) a 90-degree angle, which is still pretty wide.
It looks a lot like an iRobot in terms of its aesthetic design. Not only are these robots perfect for scouting under cars and through parking lots, but what about malls, schools, or other public venues where there are long stretches of terrain to patrol.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
