Kambria aims to launch an open innovation platform, similar to Linux and Android, that improves on the Robotics and AI economy by making the development faster, easier and cheaper. The platform will be fueled by blockchain technology and a reward system that incentivizes contributing community members. The crypto-economics in combination with blockchain technology intend to make the platform self-sufficient.
The Kambria team themselves have a front row seat within the evolution of this new frontier tech called Robotics and AI. They have been manufacturing Ohmni, a telepresence robot they created within their Silicon Valley based company called OhmniLabs. Ohmni has been the product of years of research and development in which the team noticed some key indicators that should be changed to improve the industry for the better.
The robotics and AI industry have some recurring issues. Big companies tend to keep research and development information about robotics and AI private which isn’t particularly beneficial to the industry. Smaller development teams need to reinvent the wheel because there is no previous information available about specific development. Start-ups often struggle to get enough funding for robotics development.
While working on the development of telepresence robot, Ohmni, the team at OhmniLabs experienced they could save a lot of time, effort and money by working together with other robotics companies or developers. This epiphany initiated the birth of Kambria International.
Solving these industry issues will accelerate the robotics and AI economy growth as well as provide developers with the tools to build faster, cheaper and easier.
Kambria architecture and utility token model
The Kambria architecture is comprised of 4 key players; developers; backers; companies and users which all come together in the Kambria platform. Developers work on community proposals and supply solutions. Backers will be rewarded for processing transactions on the Kambria Network and for holding their KAT tokens in their wallet. Companies set-up campaigns that ask for innovative solutions to a problem for which they will pay developers bounty-fees. End users buy robotics products from the companies that sell them.
All the players are somehow connected to the Kambria Platform which is comprised of 5 main pillars: KDNA (Kambria codebase); marketplace; manufacturing; value capture and legal enforcement.
