AIBO (Artificial Intelligence Robot) is a series of robotic pets designed and manufactured by Sony. Sony announced a prototype robot in mid-1998.The first consumer model was introduced on May 11, 1999. New models were released every year until 2005. Although most models were dog-like, other inspirations included lion-cubs and space explorer, and only the final ERS-7 version was explicitly a “robotic dog“.AIBOs were marketed for domestic use as “Entertainment Robots”. They were also widely adopted by universities for educational purposes (e.g. Robocup) and research into robotics and human-robot interaction.
AIBOs have been used in many movies, music videos and advertising campaigns as futuristic icons.There was nearly 14 edition of Aibo from 1999 to 2005 divided into three generation or series.On January 26, 2006, Sony announced that it would discontinue AIBO and several other products in an effort to make the company profitable.
Fourth Generation-Unveiled on January 9,2018
The fourth generation of Aibo is one the adorable pet from Sony launched in CES 2018 and impressed eyes of all techy and robot industry.The new Aibo is quite simply adorable. It has touch sensors on its head, chin, and back so you can pet it. It responds to touch and voice, and 22 actuators enable more realistic movement than previous models. Its eyes are OLED panels. It has a camera on its nose to help it recognize family members and search for its bone which is called Aibone while a camera on its back helps it navigate to its charging station.
Those body movements have been made smoother and more natural too, with a quad-core processor at its heart and a total of 22 actuators in charge of more than a hundred new moves, compared to his predecessor.That means that the way he moves is much more fluid – from a playful bum wiggle and tail wag to a full-on excitable run towards you, this is pretty advanced consumer-grade robotics.
The battery life-Aibo gets two hours of playtime and takes three hours to charge.
Sony says that Aibo is like a real dog and won’t always do the things you ask of him – we assume that is something that would improve with time and training.That was certainly clear in my time with Aibo.To be true With its big baby blues, happy smile and cheeky tendencies, Aibo is a seriously charming robot pooch woned me ate the first impression.
Aibo is shipping in Japan. Unfortunately, it sells for 198,000 yen, or about $1,800, along with a subscription that costs 2,980 yen ($27) a month subscription or 90,000 yen ($800) for three years.We are not about the subscription.But we are trying to figure it out.
