Amazon opens new Consumer Robotics Software Development Center in Bengaluru
Amazon on Monday said it is opening a new consumer robotics software development center in Bangalore, which will help support the company’s consumer robotics division.
Last year, Amazon introduced its first consumer robot, Astro, to help customers with a number of tasks such as home surveillance and keeping in touch with family. Using new advances in artificial intelligence, computer vision, sensor technology, and voice and cutting-edge computing, the home robot navigates your home quickly and elegantly.
To kick off the new site in Bangalore, Amazon will be hosting a virtual event – Amazon Device: All About Astro – on June 2, from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. IST. At the next event, Amazon’s top engineers and product leaders will talk about a variety of topics, including what it’s like to work at Amazon, the development of Astro, the future of consumer robotics, and more. Participants will take part in live sessions and also have fun with the new domestic robot (ingenious Astro demonstrations and raffles).
“This new Consumer Robotics Software Development Center will help support our growing consumer robotics division and attract the best talent to work on world-class technology products. India is a hub of innovation; the hub here will help Amazon create better consumer robotics experiences for customers around the world, “said Ken Washington, vice president of Consumer Robotics, Amazon.
