Wabian-2R Robot: Smart Humanoid RobotWABIAN-2R is controlled by a computer mounted on its trunk. The control computer consists of a PCI CPU board , which is connected to I/O boards through PCI bus. For I/O boards, the team used a HRP Interface Board which has 16ch D/As, 16ch Counters and 16ch PIOs, and six axis force/torque sensor receiver board. The operating system installed on control computer is QNX, which is a real time system.

Xiaomi Robot: Vacuum Cleaner RobotThe general design of the Mi Robot Vacuum isn't too far off from many existing offerings. At the bottom you'll find two circular side brushes that help sweep dirt into the main cylindrical brush. To boost suction, the machine automatically adjusts its height for a tighter seal with the floor. It walks around using its two main rubber wheels plus an assistive wheel, and is aided by ultrasonic radar sensors, wall sensors, collision sensors, cliff sensors and drop sensors.
