Eyes on the Prize: element14’s Spy Nerd Challenge and MIT’s New Robot Finds Lost Items

In this week’s podcast, we start things off with a closer look at a new robotic system developed by a team of researchers at MIT called RFusion. We investigate how it combines RF information, visual data, and neural networks to find and retrieve objects with ease. (Spoiler alert: it can even find objects when they are buried under a pile and fully out of view.) Also this week, Tariq Ahmad (element14) joins us to discuss element14’s new Spy Nerd Challenge. We chat about the motivations behind the creation of this unique electronic design contest, how you can get involved and what you can win.
