WHAT ARE THE FUNCTIONS OF EVA?

Eva Photography Robot was developed by a computer programmer in Birmingham to make party goers' selfies and debuted for the first time at a wedding.

The characteristics are as follows:

  • Measures 65 cm x 56 cm x 150 cm. (26 x 22 x 59 inches)
  • Share photos on social media or print in the room on our Print Station.
  • Large 23.8 inch (60 cm) touch screen
  • Customize the options on the screen * with brand videos & # 39; s, company logos & # 39; s or changing greetings.
  • Smart map structure
  • Infrared sensors for accurate indoor navigation and avoidance of obstacles
  • Frequent back-end updates
  • Uses a Dual OS

Numbered & # 39; Eva Photography Robot & # 39 ;, it can be modified for a number of functions with different casings for shapes like & # 39; Amy Waitress & # 39; for diners.

The robot is designed to provide a more & # 39; interactive & # 39; offer experience to weddings compared to direct cameras, according to the developer's website.

& # 39; No matter how many crazy props you give the guests, the standard booth just won't cut it anymore. A photobooth robot is a fantastic way to bring your wedding into the current decade & # 39 ;, says the site pages & # 39; s.

The robot, which recently celebrated partygoers at a wedding in Birmingham, has been described as a & # 39; humanoid & # 39 ;, a robot that resembles a human being and usually comes with limbs.

With the selfie robot, users can make selfies by pressing a capture button at the bottom of the touch screen, for example on a telephone.

It can then select the options for emailing or texting the photos & # 39; s and for sharing on social media or having it printed in a photo print booth in the same room.

The options on the screen can be pre-adjusted to include company logos or a set of greetings, according to Eve's specifications.

The robot can also be programmed to take surveys on the touch screen.

It is equipped with infrared sensors to achieve & # 39; accurate indoor navigation and obstacle avoidance & # 39; according to the website.

Chris Wood, the director of Service Robots who spoke with MailOnline, said: & # 39; They can also be pre-modified to say things like & # 39; Do you want to take a photo & # 39 ;, said Mr. Wood. & # 39;

& # 39; It is also equipped with Lidar. & # 39;

The robot (show), designed by a Birmingham company, allows partygoers to take photos via the touchscreen and then send them to themselves by e-mail or text message.

WHAT IS LIDAR TECHNOLOGY AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Lidar is a remote sensing technology that measures distance by photographing a laser on a target and analyzing the light that is reflected.

The technology was developed in the early 1960s and uses laser images with radar technology that can calculate distances.

It was first used in meteorology to measure clouds by the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

The term lidar is a portmanteau of & # 39; light and & # 39; radar. & # 39;

Lidar uses ultraviolet, visible or near-infrared light to visualize objects and can be used with a wide range of purposes, including non-metallic objects, rocks, rain, chemical compounds, aerosols, clouds and even single molecules.

A narrow laser beam can be used to map physical characteristics in a very high resolution.

With this new technique, researchers were able to outline the contours of what they describe as dozens of newly discovered Mayan cities that were hidden beneath dense jungle leaves centuries after they were left by their original inhabitants.

Aircraft with a Lidar scanner produced three-dimensional maps of the surface by using light in the form of a pulsed laser coupled to a GPS system.

The technology helped researchers discover sites faster than with traditional archaeological methods.

However, the price of using a selfie robot to capture wedding memories is clearly more expensive than an instant camera or selfie stick.

The cost of renting Eva for three hours is £ 499 ($ ​​632) + sales tax, which is around £ 750 ($ 950), and the robot can be rented for up to 8 consecutive hours.

This includes free delivery in the Birmingham area and an additional charge of approximately £ 300 ($ 380) for London, which is approximately 200 km away.

According to Mr Wood, the technology is wholly owned by his company, Service robots, but the & # 39; carcasses & # 39; of the robots are imported from China and taken apart to build the new robots.

& # 39; I am a developer with a background, but we have also been a photobooth company for the last 15 years where the idea came from & said, "Mr. Wood.

A number of companies are developing such robots for renting public buildings, including Selfiebot.
