Turtle Rover as an exhibition robot at CES in Las Vegas.
At the end of 2018 Impact Creative approached us with an idea of using Turtle Rover as an exhibition robot during CES 2019.
CES, which stands for Consumer Electronics Show, is the world's largest trade show held annually in January in Las Vegas, Nevada, and sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association. The event showcases new products, prototypes, and emerging technologies in the consumer electronics industry.
Here, there’s a short video that presents the 2019 event:

CES 2019 was devoted to the gamification of surveillance. A purpose-built course was provided. The objective of the game was pretty much mission and rescue. For this purpose, Turtle Rover was used. Throughout the course, there were placed particular objects to "rescue". The rover's task was to move around the course, find those objects and identify them. The robot could be manipulated with a little handlebar.
The rover carried an AI image-recognition software to showcase SkyHawk hard drives being used for fast data storage in robotics applications.
Here, there are other integrations that can be used with Leo Rover.
CES and other events like this are a great opportunity for all technologies lovers as well as innovators. As we could see and hear in this short material, video surveillance is about to become more than simply security. It will be supplemented by AI, which is bound to revolutionize our possibilities.
