Misty II is an autonomous robot able to move around a room and easily avoid obstacles. It is also equipped with facial recognition which allows it to detect and recognize peopl with an expansive field of view. Additionally, Misty II can respond to touch on her head or chin and also be customized (change its arms, add a trailer and more!). Finally, Misty II auto charges on its dock when needed and can also map a room and create a detailed 3D map of it.
Also a robot for developers: one part hardware, one part software!
Misty II is a robot platform, built for developers, and brought to life by Misty Robotics. She gives developers access to personal robots for both business use and individual enjoyment without needing a background in robotics.
What can you do with Misty?
If it’s got a floor, Misty can roam it. The skills you write take advantage of Misty’s ability to autonomously move in your environment. Combine your code with Misty’s capabilities and third party API’s, hardware and sensors and you’ll find a host of assignments for her to take on. She could collect and share data, report back on her environment, map her space, interact with people, control third party devices, and deliver objects.
