Finnish company OptoFidelity has created a robot with the sole purpose of playing Angry Birds.
The competition by Nokia and Rovio of the Finnish championship of Angry Birds has just been finished. In future there might be this kind of competitions also between humans and robots, at least if you ask OptoFidelity. We have put the robot technology into good use, and designed a system which plays Angry Birds automatically.
As OptoFidelity does a lot of work with touch panel testing and performance testing for mobile devices using video and optical measuring systems, it wasn’t hard to implement an application for this particular need. The most difficult part of the project was to play through all levels of Angry Birds. Thanks to the ready-made components that OptoFidelity already had, the robot controlling part was quite easy.
OptoFidelity envisions a future where humans could compete against robots in motion controlled games.
