Infineon Rubik's Cube Machine

Most would consider solving a Rubik’s Cube in minutes to be impossible, but Infineon Technologies engineer Albert Beer has manged to create a robot that set a new world record by taking just 0.637-seconds to complete the puzzle. “It takes tremendous computing power to solve such a highly complex puzzle with a machine. In the case of ‘Sub1 Reloaded’, the power for motor control was supplied by a microcontroller from Infineon’s AURIX family, similar to the one used in driver assistance systems. Minimal reaction times play an even greater role in autonomous driving. A high data-processing rate is necessary to ensure real-time capabilities with clock frequencies of 200 MHz. As a result of this ability, a vehicle can safely and reliably apply the brakes when it approaches a barrier,” said Beer. Click here to view the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.
