Japan based Namiki Laboratory is working on specialized robots that possess advanced vision and reaction-time, Even faster than humans! So they decided to go ahead to play with one and make it a sword fighter!
A pair of high speed camera give the robot stereo vision, so it can perceive depth. This gives it the ability to judge its opponents location and moments, as well as the position of its own sword in 3D space. The lab’s custom algorithm help the robot analyse possible trajectories and their reaction times. This is how the robot determines its possible moves and defense mechanisms.
