The combined NICTA and UNSW project, led by NICTA's Dr John Judge, developed the clarinet playing robot in over eight months.
The clarinet works without an attached PC, demonstrating versatility of embedded systems. The human interface is achieved via USB attached keyboard, LCD screen and LEDs. NICTA estimates that around 98 per cent of computing devices are now embedded, with systems getting smaller and smarter each day.
