Evolution Robotics debuts system to make robots aware of their environment

On of the cool things coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show this week is a navigation system developed by Passedena based Evolution Robotics.

Northstar 2.0 is a new, low-cost, hardware and software localization solution that enables mobile devices to navigate more intelligently in indoor environments. The NorthStar system brings advanced localization performance at costs suitable for the consumer products industry.

Evolution states that Northstar 2.0 cost only 1/100th as what it would cost if using more traditional technology

The system is named Northstar 2.0 and San Diego’s WowWee Group has already incorporated the system in its Rovio telpresence robot.
