Stuttgart / Las Vegas – After the ISS space station, Bosch is now moving a little further into space with its research projects on artificial intelligence (AI). For the US space agency Nasa, the technology group is working with other companies on technologies for robots that are to be used on the lunar surface. Specifically, it is about intelligent, autonomous navigation and wireless charging, as Bosch announced on Monday at the online edition of the technology fair CES. The whole thing is a cooperation with the US companies Astrobotic and Wibotic as well as the University of Washington.
The two companies are part of a number of firms that NASA has selected as its technology partner for its lunar missions planned over the decade. Bosch wants to use the findings from the project to further develop new AI technologies on earth. The technology group has already worked with Astrobotic on the SoundSee project. This is an intelligent sensor that has been in use on the ISS space station since the end of 2019 and listens there for noises that indicate malfunctions or defects.
