LOVOT, developed by Japanese company GROOVE X, is a home companion robot that can be touched, has warmth, and combines love and emotion. Through the camera on its head, it can recognize faces, remember the people it interacts with, and gradually develop emotions for these individuals. However, LOVOT's small stature and the 360° camera on its head pose significant challenges for facial recognition:
Macnica and GROOVE X collaborated to implement CyberLink's FaceMe® SDK, providing the most suitable solution for Groove X's home companion robot LOVOT. With accurate, rapid recognition, and exclusive image processing technology to address the challenge of wide camera recognition range and different camera angles, FaceMe SDK significantly improves LOVOT's facial recognition capabilities to create a more personal and interactive experience.
