NASA is developing an Alexa-enabled robot for its Mars mission 2020
The announcement was made during Tuesday Night Live with James Hamilton session at the ongoing AWS re:Invent 2016 conference in Las Vegas.
The first day of the tenth Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent event closed today with a Tuesday Night Live with James Hamilton (VP and Distinguished Engineer at AWS) session at Hall B, Sands Expo, Las Vegas.
During the session, Hamilton invited several guest speakers to share the stage with him, including Tom Soderstorm, IT Chief Technology Officer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Soderstorm spoke of the role cloud computing plays in NASA’s mission to return to Mars in 2020.
“We now have technologies, new partnerships coming in, and it’s going to be an exciting time,” he opened.
He continued by stating that NASA is going to continue its Mars mission in 2020, by landing a new spacecraft on its surface just like they have done four years ago.
The new explorer will have improved features such as new wheels with better ability to climb taller hills, a microphone for scientists to record sounds from the planet, drills to dig and store rock samples, and an ability to produce oxygen “to prepare for the next Matt Damons that might come up and need some help.”
Interestingly, ROV-E, the prototype for the new explorer, is able to be operated by both a joystick and Amazon’s voice-enabled virtual assistant Alexa. The prototype will be showcased on the second day of AWS re:Invent.
“This looks remarkably like toys, but that’s not a bad thing. On the contrary, it’s speeding up how we work, how we test, how we fuse,” he said, adding that ROV-E will be a blueprint that is publicly available for schools, universities, and the public to build themselves.
“The idea is that we are all going to be the future of explorers,” he said.
Soderstorm explained that cloud computing plays a great role in space technology nowadays, particularly in transferring data gathered through various missions. JPL had also begun to change how the institution is working with cloud technology, which is by implementing it since the beginning of a project.
Soderstorm also predicted the future of space technology, which he believed will involve greater participation by the public through various media.
“Now the next generation … they have much more knowledge. They have smartphones with the NASA JPL app and they will expect to be amazed by what they find. They want to participate; they don’t want to just observe. They want to be part of it, whether they are on the surface just like my personal heroes when I grew up the astronauts; they want to participate by using augmented reality, using their smartphones, or [even] on the surface as astronaut,” he elaborated.
“It’ no longer about space race between countries; it’s a race for humanity into space,” he stressed.
Google launches Android Things, a new OS for IoT gadgets
Google has launched Android Things, an IoT platform that lets you build connected devices while leveraging Android APIs and the company’s cloud-based services for delivering updates and enabling voice commands.The company says it’s combining Brillo, its previous Android-based IoT OS, with tools like Android Studio, the Android SDK, Google Play Services, and Google Cloud Platform, to make it easier for developers to build smart devices.Google is also working to add support for Weave, its IoT communications platform that helps devices connect to Google services for setup and to talk to other gadgets, as well as Google Assistant.Philips Hue and Samsung SmartThings already use Weave; Google says that other major manufacturers like Belkin WeMo, LiFX, Honeywell, Wink, TP-Link, and First Alert will also back the platform. Plus, Nest’s Nest Weave will also be merged into Weave so all the connected devices from these brands will be able to work with each other.In addition, you can begin building products using supported hardware development kits like Intel Edison, NXP Pico, and Raspberry Pi 3.With that, Google hopes to lead the charge in the burgeoning IoT platform space. Although there are several alternatives available to developers, the company’s offering, with access to its cloud services, might seem more compelling than the rest.Android Things is currently in Developer Preview; you can get started here. The company will also work with Brillo users to help migrate their projects to the new platform.
