AI Program For More Innovative & Efficient Robots
MIT C-SAIL (Computer Science AI Lab) researchers have invented a remarkable AI program called RoboGrammar. You tell RoboGrammar what task you want the robot to perform and what parts you have to create it. The program provides an optimal design approach to create the robot. The C-SAIL team believes RoboGrammar will result in more innovative and efficient robotic designs.
Three Step Process
The AI program goes through three steps before creating a customized design. It needs a list of available parts and the specific task that the robot will perform. For example, a customized design for a robot that can go up and down steps and traverse rugged terrains. The third step, created by C-SAIL, is a set of constraints called the "grammar graph". The graph ensures that the design is fully functional.
AI Showing the Way
Also, users can search RoboGrammar's database of designs to determine the best performers. The customized designs produced by the AI program are not finalized products. The designs provide engineers and roboticists with the best way to go before they start building a robot. This is an impressive example of AI showing the robotic way.
