The Yaskawa Motoman Deals Blackjack
April 2nd, 2013 by Site Admin
The Automate 2013 show in Chicago is a celebration of robotic innovation and automation. While technology has been increasingly allowing for robots to be capable of nearly any range of human tasks, it’s hardly surprising when the next greatest new toy comes along. In that sense, hearing about a robot that can deal cards may not sound remarkable, however as details about the remarkable Motoman begin to emerge, you may soon see how this impressive robot is taking automated functionality to new heights.
The Yaskawa Motoman can actually read the cards dealt, while making complex decisions based on the rules of blackjack. If this is nothing short of amazing, we don’t know what is.
When watching the Motoman in action, you may think you’re actually looking at a space age robot straight out of a science fiction movie, however it becomes clear that dealing is actually a fairly complex process that utilizes many motor functions in what, for humans, is essentially effortless. Reconstructing this level of functionality in a robot is simply impressive no matter how you look at it. For the time being, it does not seem that these robots will be functional enough, nor affordable enough to endanger the jobs of seasoned blackjack dealers.
