ITRI to Exhibit Innovations in AI, Robotics, ICT and Health Tech

Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Taiwan’s largest and one of the world’s leading high-tech applied research institutions highlight advanced technologies including the RGB-D AI Robot. The robot is the first collaborative robot that integrates a smart 3D vision module as a built-in standard for high-precision object recognition and pick-and-place operation.

The 3D camera and MEMS laser scanning projector, along with AI training data auto-labelling technology, allows the robot to quickly learn through visually acquired data and perform hand-eye coordination skills. This innovation can be applied to human-robot collaboration in both the manufacturing and service sectors.

In AI, robotics, and ICT technologies category, ITRI will also present the Autonomous Selfie Drone. Combined with AI algorithms, the drone analyses posture and surrounding background to compose pictures. It flies itself to take the best picture based on common photography techniques. Users can set up different close-up angles, photography body ratios and compositions and the drone uses smart framing technology to create a natural and unobtrusive match between the subject and the surroundings.

Another ICT technology is the Interactive Time Machine that creates a unique 3D interactive avatar and experience combining a user’s motion, 3D model, and display in real-time. The machine forms a metaverse for avatars to interact with players in real-time. 3D/2D image sensors detect the facial features and body movements of the player to create a younger-looking 3D avatar based on an AI architecture.

In 5G technology, the technology is the 5G O-RAN RIC, a 5G network management system consisting of an open radio access network (O-RAN) based 5G RAN intelligent controller (RIC) and an element management system (EMS). The RIC includes both non-real-time (non-RT) and near-real-time (near-RT) RICs.

The non-RT RIC collects the RAN information and predicts network behaviour through machine learning. The near-RT RIC automatically adjusts the radio resource management (RRM) to the RAN and prevents the quality of experience (QoE) from being reduced by the predicted results of the non-RT RIC. The EMS orchestrates managed elements.

ITRI’s health technologies include muscular functional screening mirror features advanced visual recognition technology measuring muscular strength, flexibility, and imbalances beyond traditional posture or body composition analysis. For elders, it examines functional health and early signs of frailty. The screening involves the user performing simple poses. The system provides clear and friendly audiovisual instructions and a printed personalized exercise plan based on the results.

Another innovation is an innovative wearable device using ITRI’s low-power radar sensing technology to detect multiple physiological parameters for non-contact and long-term pet health monitoring. It tracks a pet’s health data including heart rate, respiration, and activity, alerting the pet guardian of abnormalities via a mobile app, and is usable both indoors and outdoors.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, ITRI and a Taiwan-based tech company jointly announced that they will collaborate on a next-generation integrated electrosurgery system and co-develop a hybrid energy system for minimally invasive surgery.

This collaborative project, supported by the Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT), Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), combines ITRI’s software-hardware integration ability and Catcher Technology’s expertise in material manufacturing to jointly develop advanced medical device applications. The aim is to foster an ecosystem of med-tech industrial clusters in Taiwan, increase the value of medical devices, and seize the smart and precision medicine markets.

ITRI and the tech company on the next-generation integrated electrosurgery system can fulfil clinical needs by providing one instrument with multiple functions, and thus bring more benefits to clinicians and patients alike. As Taiwan has a complete ICT industrial cluster and high-quality medical system conducive to the development of personalised medicine, mHealth and telemedicine, industries can explore the new value and market opportunities from multidisciplinary cooperation and integration.
