Doosan Robotics has been named as Honoree in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022 Innovation Awards for its camera robot system, “New Inspiration. New Angle. (NINA)” in the Robotics category. The CES Innovation Awards program, organized by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 27 consumer technology product categories.
Doosan Robotics’ unprecedented camera robot system, NINA was recognized by CTA this year for its consumer-friendly software designed to empower anyone to adopt professional cinematography skills using camera robots.
NINA is assisted by Doosan’s proprietary software with simplified user-interface that helps people without robotics experiences to take easy control when filming. The innovative software takes users to the next-level by having the ability to automatically sense an object and calculate distance for smooth and consistent robotic-assisted filming. Furthermore, users can pre-test angles and motions by running simulations prior to actual filming, which can help conserve time and ultimately save production costs.
Alongside internal elements, NINA also comes with award-winning hardware characteristics. Overcoming limitations of conventional camera robots, Doosan’s robot that features NINA boasts 360-degree rotation creating uniqueness in cinematic works and is ergonomically compact in design, providing performance on par with industry robots with an astonishing payload of 25KG. Setting working spaces virtually, the fence-less robot’s safety standard is validated with the highest scores Pl e and Cat. 4 on its safety and emergency stop functions. It also provides safety controls with collision sensitivity powered by six-torque sensors and a gravity compensation algorithm. Moreover, the robot comes bundled with an external controller that acts as a joypad, assisting easy command.
To further enhance its accessibility, Doosan Robotics plans to build an open platform for users to exchange presets of camera movements to diversify filming results and allow beginners to incorporate difficult-to-film angles at a click of a button. Through this, the company ultimately seeks to foster an inspiring open ecosystem for content creators.
“Today’s recognition marks another great milestone for Doosan Robotics and the team who have worked relentlessly to develop robot solutions used in everyday workstream,” said William (Junghoon) Ryu, CEO at Doosan Robotics. “We will continue advancing service robots to help people accomplish more valuable work placing safety as top priority and democratize its use by providing easier usability and wider access to all levels.”
The award-winning Doosan Robotics will be exhibiting at CES 2022, showcasing their innovative technology lineup between January 5 to 8, 2022.
