National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, JVC Develop 8-megapixel High-resolution Robotics Technology.

Tokyo, Japan, Feb 1, 2006 - (JCN) - The National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) and Victor Company of Japan (JVC) announced on February 1 that they have co-developed a network robot vision system that achieves a vision resolution of 8 megapixels, close to the limit of the human vision.

The system consists of a high-resolution robot camera and network humanoid robot. Developed by JVC, the camera has a single 8-megapixel color CSMO sensor, and is about 1/18 the weight and 1/19 the size of its predecessor with the same resolution the company developed in 2002.

Developed by the NICT, the humanoid robot has humanoid arms and hands with five fingers with probing capability. A person wearing data gloves embedded with join bending sensors can manipulate the robot's arms and fingers via a network.

The robotics technology is expected to be used for telemedicine and nursing care applications.
