Soon after the launch of the new iPhone 5 device reported by Apple, Quantum International, a robotics company, has started looking for developers with competence to create advanced robots capable of being controlled through iPhone 5 and other related modern gadgets.
Packed with excellent integration of sensors, display, network connectivity, and processing power, the iPhone 5 serves to be a versatile and dynamic innovation that acts like compact, powerful robotic brains. Earlier generation technologies now pave way for new innovations in robotics, while upgrades in the latest iPhone assure new potential advancements.
Quantum is now focused on establishing the position of the company so as to foster investment on the impending in-demand automatons supporting world’s renowned smartphones. New products including Parrot's AR.Drone 2.0 quadrocopter and Orbotix’s Sphero toy have demonstrated its capability for mobile devices as robotics interfaces. Quantum International is now exploring early-stage developers for achieving joint venture and acquisition. It targets developers with competence to create new robotics innovation to control the user-friendly mobile technology of iPhone 5.
Quantum has started looking out for potentially lucrative new robotics targets on a world-wide basis. The company has entered into an agreement with the Warsaw, Poland-based prestigious Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements (PIAP).
Quantum anticipates rapid growth as it competes along with robotics companies such as iRobot, AeroVironment, and Intuitive Surgical.
