Skilligent, an MSRS partner, has announced the release 1.0 of its Skilligent Robot Learning and Behavior Control System for service robots. The software includes a behavior control and coordination system, task and skill learning functions, computer vision system, a social human-to-robot interface, a database for storing knowledge and other integrated robotic components. The control system is designed for applications in various domains including the defense, industry, agriculture, museums, food processing and households.
The Skilligent software enables solution providers to create robots which can be trained by end users - vs. programmed by a software engineer. The software analyzes the user's gestures, looks at the objects presented by the user, listens to the sounds and learns what the robot is supposed to do.
