Intel, the Santa Clara-based chipmaker giant, is getting more serious about the company's latest project- developing small computers. Intel's latest project, Dubbed Intel Euclid, is getting a huge facelift.

According to PC World, Intel is set to announce more details about the small computer, which was first introduced in August of last year. Intel Euclid is a unique all-in-one RealSense device that packed in the small, candy bar-sized stick.

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich first introduced Euclid at the 2016 Intel Developer Forum keynote. The company described the new device as a robotics platform that user can put in their pocket and that can be brought sensors to any robot.

To encourage third-party development, Intel has already launched the Euclid Developer Kit on Mouse Electronics website. However, Intel didn't provide much information about pricing and specific launch date.

Intel Euclid Boast More Advanced Tech On Board
Intel first made a demo of the Euclid computer in a robot moving during Intel Developer Forum in August. This small candy-sized computer boasts GPS capabilities for navigation and can be operated remotely through a mobile device or PC.

The devices also support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to communicate with the PC and other mobile devices. Intel also said that Euclid can be placed in a robot and serve as a full, autonomous brain with advanced sensing capabilities on board.

An Intel Atom CPU provides the processing power and also analyze the images collected by the 3D RealSense camera. That same Atom processor is also used to power the robot's movement and help it complete certain tasks.

The Euclid's 1080p camera comes bundled with an infrared camera and an infrared laser projector. The Euclid is also fitted with a microphone, speakers, HDMI and USB 3.o slots for doing additional tasks. There's also a barometric pressure sensor.

In addition, Euclid also features motion and position sensors on board which can help the robot move around both indoors and outdoors environment.

These additional features and sensors will provide robots with a much better sense of depth and motion, thus making them more accurate on their own movements.

As for the OS, Intel Euclid currently supports Linux-based Ubuntu OS and Robotics Operating System (ROS). Intel Euclid is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2017, according to The Verge.
