Cameras and LiDAR are also present to help robots avoid collisions. That doesn't require dramatic changes to the bots themselves, at least. The test units are Ghost Robotics projects, supplemented with sensors to test the new algorithms.
The initial work proved to be fruitful, but there is still a lot of work to do before you can see it in robots outside the lab. Assistant and key researcher Cavel Hamed also stressed that it's not just about making algorithms more efficient ̵
