Australian artificial intelligence company Stealth Technologies and control technology giant Honeywell have joined forces to develop a range of robotic autonomous vehicles.
Honeywell has paid Stealth an initial $100,000 and will jointly develop mobile robots the companies believe offer a rapid payback.
The vehicles will form the basis of navigation services ranging from inspection, transportation and surveillance activities to military, mining, industrial and healthcare.
Stealth is 100 per cent owned by pooled development fund company Strategic Elements (ASX: SOR).
PDFs raise capital and make equity investments in Australian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The Stealth group is a multi-disciplinary team with the capability to custom build systems and has a focus on both hardware and software.
Sttategic Elements managing director Charles Murphy said “An enormous amount of effort over the past 10 months has grown the venture from conception to working with one of the world’s leading technology companies in Honeywell”.
Stealth lists its expertise as:
# Physically building automated robotic machines.
# Integrating computer vision capabilities enabling a computer to see through cameras and sensors.
# Creating artificial intelligence through machine learning and software development.
