ALLIANCE OF GIANTS ---Fetch a Beer or Play a Game
Evolution Robotics (626) 229-3199
WowWee Robotics (800) 310-3033 Evolution Robotics, a leading provider of next-generation robotics solutions, announced a strategic alliance with WowWee RoboticsT, the number one consumer entertainment robotics company, to integrate Evolution's technologies for vision and navigation into the next generation of WowWee products. WowWee's award-winning RoboraptorT and RobosapienT are among the best-selling robots on the market, with several million robots sold to date. Evolution Robotics works with leading consumer brands to make their robots smarter using breakthrough solutions in vision and autonomous navigation.
WowWee will incorporate two of Evolution's unique technologies in their line of products: ViPRT and NorthstarT. ViPR (Visual Pattern Recognition) is the "gold standard" in visual recognition technology, and provides reliable and fast recognition of patterns, objects, and locations in realistic environments. Northstar, known as "Indoor GPS," is the world's lowest-cost solution for position-awareness for consumer robots, and enables robots to navigate autonomously and intelligently. Both of these technologies will be used by WowWee as they continue to create breakthrough robotic companions and entertainment products.
