How Forpheus Works
Forpheus relies mainly on artificial intelligence and image detection technology to reproduce human behavior. No more robots taking orders from us humans; tutors like Forpheus exemplifies how Omron continues to harmonize the modern world with AI technology. Forpheus is the ultimate challenging yet responsive player. Its capability of challenging the opponent with continuous adjustment allows it to provide the opponent with an experience that enhances their personal skills. Having the ability to analyze the hit of a ball 80 times per second allows for ball direction detection makes it possible for Forepheus to adjust and progressively increase intensity. This creates a coaching approach to the game and is why it is not just a ping pong playing robot, but both an opponent and tutor. Forpheus’ arm intensity control adjustment allows for it to provide the highest possibility of a successful rally with the opponent, maintaining the match’s intensity and excitement. What level do you think Forpheus would choose for you? Our RIDEPLAY tv team was impressed with the results!
