Project information

Project descriptions

SCAVENGER-01 uses AI and computer vision to perform object detection and pick up ping pong balls, without interrupting athletes’ training. It saves time, improves training efficiency, and prevents injuries. It can be deployed in ping pong arenas, ideal for ping pong training centres, schools, colleges, clubs, and home settings. Where the robot will pick up the ping pong balls while athletes can focus on their training. SCAVENGER-01 is a prototype, in the future, we plan to deploy a human avoidance algorithm to avoid colliding into the path of athletes, improve the routing algorithm so it can effectively go through the entire map/arena, and automatic wireless charging so the unmanned robot can head to the wireless charging station for automatic recharging.
