Who is HEXA?
I’m an all-terrain hexapod robot. I fit in a backpack. I have a variety of sensors, an open operating system, and an easy-to-use SDK. I’m the starting point of an artificial life. It’s nice to meet you.
HEXA is a fearless explorer that dreams of surveying volcanoes on Mars.
HEXA is a super hero that protects and saves human lives from earthquakes and fires.
HEXA is anything and everything we can dream of, because the human spirit is alive and well inside this little robot.
About its structure:
HEXA has six legs to go wherever it wants. Sensors to see and know which way is up. Plus, it is coming out with exciting hardware interfaces, an open operating system, and a well-designed SDK with easy-to-follow documents. The rest is up to you.
Infinite Rotation Structure: HEXA’s six insect-like legs allow it to seamlessly rotate in any direction. Its round body design allows its head to rotate around a center shaft. The result, no matter which way HEXA faces or goes, that’s forward.
About compute and think:
The dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, plus multiple co-processors, deliver outstanding computing ability. It supports image, video, face, voice recognition, and machine learning algorithms that deliver the unique ability to intelligently adapt to almost any situation.
About its eyes:
HEXA’s eyes (the camera) support image recognition in order to decipher humans, pets or any other object. It can even distinguish between its owner and strangers. The image it sees is directly transmitted to the display on your mobile phone and VR headset, etc. So what it sees, you see – allowing you to explore places you would not normally be able to go. Night vision is also supported.
The built-in distance measuring sensor provides HEXA with the ability to measure between 4–60in (10–150cm). This function not only allows it to sense depth of field, it can literally sense the space around it. Or in other words, you never have to worry about HEXA hitting a wall while in automatic mode.
About HEXA on your mobile:
Through HEXA App, you can remotely control your HEXA from your mobile phone. You can explore the world through HEXA’s eyes. You can connect to it when you are on another continent via the Internet.
