In recent years, embodied intelligence represents a significant shift in the way researchers approach artificial intelligence. By focusing on the integration of perception, action, and interaction with the environment, this field aims to create intelligent systems that can adapt and learn in complex, real-world scenarios. Emphasizing the physical body and its interaction with the environment allows researchers to explore intelligence in a more holistic and human-like manner. In the context of autonomous driving cars, for example, embodied intelligence involves developing vehicles that not only perceive their surroundings through sensors like cameras and LiDAR but also actively respond to dynamic traffic situations, pedestrians, and unexpected events. These intelligent agents need to make decisions based on their understanding of the environment, ensuring safety and efficiency in their interactions with other road users. Similarly, service robots equipped with embodied intelligence can navigate homes or public spaces, understand natural language commands, and interact with objects and humans. By combining visual perception, language understanding, and physical actions, these robots can assist with various tasks, enhancing their usability and practicality in real-world settings.
