RoboCar – Autobots Roll Out!

If by some unexplained cosmic phenomena (let us say – ZMP) mystically managed to cross an open sourced Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT) from Knight Rider with a crash test dummy, then RoboCar will be the product. This cute little intelligent Linux based bugger is designed and made by ZMP – a renowned robotics company based in Tokyo, Japan, to test autonomous auto technologies. It means that before putting untested AI or automations on a 3 digit horsepower vehicle, it is better to test their algorithms and program instruction on this adorable 6 pound little model. It is probably safer and least expensive too. Although it would be fun putting a “brain” on a Dodge Viper and watch it say “I am Cobra, I have horsepower!” in an Austrian oak like voice.

This 17 inches robot car, albeit small, has features that only you can dream of for your own automobile. Say for instance a top of the line CPU in the form of AMD Geode LX800 processor. Now for what is “under the hood”, RoboCar has WiFi 802.11b/g/n, stereo CCD cameras, eight infrared sensors, three accelerometers, a gyroscope, and a laser range finder. Basically, all the toppings and trimmings you would need in a robotic test car. Initial price is around $7000 and is limited to only 200 units this year. If cars, AI and David Hasselhoff is your thing then save up and get in the line early.
